Your ideal companion for observing and exploring the natural world
Designed to the last detail by the "modern Audubon" John (Jack) Muir Laws, The Laws Sketchbook for Nature Journaling is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in the practice and joy of getting out, observing, and recording nature. Sturdy covers and a lay-flat sewn binding make field sketching easy, and artists of all levels will appreciate the eighty blank pages of high quality paper suitable for pen, pencil, and light washes. In addition, this journal includes tips, techniques, and advice from master nature journalist and teacher Jack Laws. Reference illustrations to solve common nature-drawing problems, tools for measuring and quantifying observations, and a grommet-secured elastic band that holds everything tight at the end of the day make this sketchbook an essential tool when out in the field.
JOHN (JACK) MUIR LAWS is the author of The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada and The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling, as well as co-author of How to Teach Nature Journaling with Emilie Lygren.
