Recycled Note(book) Of The Week: Esta Sketch

Every week or so we use this space to feature a recycled note or three from some of our favorite online sources. This week I thought I thought I’d switch it up a bit and feature two recycled notebooks from an extremely talented Australian artist, Esta Sketch.

I love the fact that they’re discarded sketches re-purposed into artistic and usable notebooks. Which makes every one them (lovely, and) one-of-a-kind!

Recycled Art Notebook (blue)

From the seller:

This is a handbound notebook constructed from cartridge paper and silk screen prints. The cover features one of my ‘comfort’ prints that didn’t turn out perfectly.

The covers will contain flaws.. underinked or overinked areas, smudges, slightly crooked registration, etc. but they’re still beautiful prints on beautiful heavyweight paper. Affordable art for you to carry everywhere with you!

These notebooks are of a very limited edition, I have 2 – 3 of each print only. If you’d like a different cover than the one listed please convo me and I’ll put a listing up for you if it’s still available.

Each notebook is approximately 15cm x 21cm (6×8 inches) and contains 22 pages. Would make a great notebook or sketchbook, small and light enough to take just about anywhere. (The listing is for 1 book only.)

    Well done. I thought you were talking about the other CA where I live now. Interesting to read what our progressive northern pals are doing.
