The Sketchbook Project is a crowd-sourced art project which sees artists turn a small 32-page grey sketchbook into a living, breathing piece of art. Each sketchbook is then catalogued and becomes part of a traveling exhibition of the handmade books, before eventually ending up in the permanent collection at Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg. Allowing for the project to go global, a simultaneous digital library exists to showcase the project to those that can’t make it to the trendy, creative New York suburb. People from all walks of life and with any level of artistic skill are invited to fill the pages of a blank sketchbook and send it back for inclusion in the ever-growing library of inspiration.
