If you know a bit about me, you know my obsession with sketchbooks. Unruled journals. Spiral bound preferred. I wrote a bit about my sketchbooks last year during my gig as Guest Mom on DesignMom.com. So, naturally, I was thrilled to discover Jacob Deatherage’s Journals at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco recently! His company, Ex Libris Anonymous, recycles old books into journals, each containing about 75 sheets of acid free paper that is perfect for sketching. Between the blank pages, Jacob leaves in a few original pages from the book. So cool, so vintage, so charming. Need I mention practical?Jacob’s website, BookJournals.com, is full of fun, vintage repurposed books priced so low you can buy in bulk. You will love his blog featuring lovelies found within the pages of the books he salvages. Here are my Ex Libris Anonymous journals and the sweet things I found inside:Super nice Jacob was wonderful enough to offer some of his books for a giveaway on my blog!
