I happened upon this book today at Barnes & Noble and am very happy that I did! It's full of inspiration!!!! Other than seeing into artists sketchbooks the artists have written what keeping a sketchbook entails for them.

This is an inspirational book for illustrators,designers & artists, partly because there are so few books like it. Although it contains some good work overall I found it would have been improved by showing the sketchbooks of some fine artists and not just commercial artists. This would be an interesting contrast in itself and perhaps help balance out the slightly overly neat & considered aspect of many of the pages in this book. I think I wanted something a bit less graphic but I'd still recommend it to anyone interested in sketchbooks.

Expected a serious time consuming work of sketchbook - instead it showed scrapbook without the conscious of design. Liked the jacket but not the inside.

Thumbing through this book was a little bit of a let down ,I have seen better books on the raw materials of creatives .Yes ,we are dealing with designers here ,it is a good book,but one I highly recommend is :" Inspired How Creative People Think , Work , and Find Inpiration " By Dorte Nielsen and Kiki Hartman ."Sketchbooks " Text is much more helpful ,showing different ways creatives get their ideas ,so many inspiring ways that they get them !The visuals are not too inspiring to me .I'm just one person.But if you want to read how designers get inspiration ,this book is helpful .
