Comfortable Shoes Studio is the name of my little studio in Beverly, Massachusetts; here I paint large watercolors, smaller acrylics, and mostly bind books and journals. I specialize in custom bound journals and sketchbooks with adhesive-free sewing in which the sewing is visible and decorative on the spine. If you're interested please email me!

Finished custom Order
So today I finished the customer order for the large size sketchbook. Things went pretty seamlessly on the actual journal. I encountered none of the issues I had with the smaller size and the other journal I made. I reinforced the spine with tyvek AND 80lb drawing paper. I then used eyelets for added strength and durability. I love how it looks. It's also very hefty. 9x11 inches is a big sketchbook. It has 144 pages in 9 signatures. Hopefully the woman who ordered it is as happy with the results as I am.
Here are some pics: The last 2 are of the cover and the eyelets without any pages or anything else. The rest are of the finished product.
