1866 Ledger

I found this incredible vintage ledger at the thrift store last month. It has light blue thin pages, perfect for drawing. The date on the side is 1866!

Not sure if it's authentically that old but it sure is cool to think your sketchbook is from the 1800's. I love the marble sides and creepy cover.

I finally received this amazing book by Valerie L. Winslow. You can never have enough anatomy books. This is a really gorgeously drawn one with tons of in depth instruction.

Oh me oh my !
What a wonderful, dreamy binding ...
And the marble-painted pages ? Best detail ever !
The luckiest find, indeed.
