made to order, made by hand

Our sketchbooks and journals are for artists and writers who choose quality over quantity. ‘Handmade’ is not a buzzword in our studio - we love binding and it shows with every sketchbook that leaves the Lake Michigan Book Press studio. Ordering from us gives you the chance to tailor any book to fit your individual needs - whether you are a writer, artist or planner addict.

Though every book is made-to-order, we pride ourselves on turn-around time. Your book will typically ship within 3-5 business days.
