Sketchbooks on Show






 I was lucky to catch the last day of an exhibition of sketchbooks organised by the Urban Sketchers group in Palermo.
'Carnet di Viaggio' at the contemporary art museum was based on the annual festivities for Santa Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo. 





Anna Cottone who organised the exhibition called it 'an experience and journey that moves between fantasy and reality at the same time'




All the sketchbooks were all the Japanese accordian style, which were displayed opened out along the shelves all around the room.  They looked fantastic together, I'm so glad I didn't miss it!

I have never seen an exhibition of sketchbooks before! That looks wonderful! Are the pages already accordion-style in the artists' sketchbooks, or do they remove them from their sketchbooks and mount them this way? I'm curious, because I'm filling my little moleskine journal with drawings lately, and would like to maybe display them at some point.

Katherine - the sketchbooks were already accordian style, some of the larger ones were home made with covers to matchb he theme. They displayed well, staying open and upright. Hope that helps!
