Carina and Theresa, wonderful sketchbooks - and so very different. Thanks for sharing.  I've always been fond of accordion style books and homemade books in general.

Was moved by Theresa's closing lines:

"We take the slow way home through

solitary farmland and small towns.

Black fields

and then a white house

with on lights on."

They reminded me a bit of the poems of Helen West Heller - an interesting artist I am especially fond of from the farmlands of Illinois during the early 20th Century.

Here are some off her poems/woodcuts from "Migratory Urge," 1928:

and there is more on the the artist at this website I created for her:

Thanks for the welcome S-M, nice to be here! Sketchbooks are always surprising us in a way, love that. Great work Theresa!

Here's two photos of a "sketchbook" (?) I did 2011, they are mostly somekind of nonsense scribble book...

I did these sketches in a moleskine journal that I thought would turn into a combination of sketches and writing, but then I got very busy with the writing part of it and stopped sketching.  Maybe sometime I'll get back to the writing/sketching/journaling.  The good thing about this process is that it did lead me to write and complete a cycle of poems, mostly haibun.  So it served a purpose!

Carina Granlund, welcome to this group. We look forward to viewing your "scribble books" with us. . . Hi Scattergood-More, Would love to join your group! I make my own sketchbooks and use them mostly as scribblebooks, perhaps not so beautiful drawings but... fun!
