Buy a book, fill it up and send it back!

All sketchbooks we get back will be included in our collection. Buy one for yourself, or for your creative friend.


How it Works

  • Exhibit

    Every book submitted to The Sketchbook Project joins the collection at Brooklyn Art Library, our storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.

  • Purchase

    Everyone starts from the same blank book. Place your order, and we’ll mail you your project to get started, which includes your book and all the other details you’ll need to know.

  • Create

    Fill your sketchbook with drawing, writing, collage, photography and any other way that you’re inspired to fill a page. Mail it back to Brooklyn Art Library when you’re finished.

  • Mail

    All the details of what to do when you’re done are included with your order. Once you complete your book, mail it back to Brooklyn Art Library, where we’ll check in your book and get it ready to join the collection.

  • Catalog

    Connect your book to an account online and give us the 411. Tag your sketchbook with searchable catalog details, write your artist bio, title your book, pick your theme and more
