Sketchtravel is another “travelling” journal, similar to the 1,000 journals project, www.lookatbook.com and others. This time, the recipients are known artists and illustrators and each one hands off of the journal, even photographed doing so. Images of the pages are online in a flash based book with turnable pages. The actual book is housed inside a wooden box and looks to be well traveled and taken good care of.

I think the internet has helped artists and book lovers to create “shared books” with online communities. With websites we can virtually follow the progress of the books and get to know their destinations and recipients. Maybe we can start a travelling book from the Rag & Bone Blog? Maybe something to do in the fall?…
