Contemporary artist Marano here has created modern eye-catching sketchbooks from reusing clothes labels and Costa Coffee cup holders, which once worked into add meaning to the project. “To use recycled materials instead of buying new stuff also it gives it a better look I think and it’s nice to see what you can make using things you wouldn’t see normally as a book” (Marano, 2010). The concertina sketchbook is created by folding an A3 piece of paper into landscape three sections and portrait four sections, the two fold lines landscape are then cut up three squares of four either side, which is then folded like a spring. The pocket Leporello sketchbook by Hedi Kyle is the most complex sketchbook created so far. The sketchbook design enables the artist to use the book to store and collect a variety of materials and drawings on a particular subject, creating almost a folder to hold the collections within. Recycling an old used storybook which is no longer suitable for the children to handle anymore by converting the story into a sketchbook, is an effective use of resources especially within a primary school. The end result is a stimulating sketchbook which inspires the use of the imagination. The storybook could be used in a number of ways for example as a sketchbook to develop ideas on a theme or as an observational book, however I have used my storybook, ‘Ayu and the Perfect Moon’ by David Cox to focus on re-illustrating the story. The end result is a visually stimulating, eye-catching which has brought the story to life. “Illustrations enable children to enjoy visual exploration through their imaginations” (Lee, 2009, p.10).
