This notebook/sketchbook features cotton paper that was marbled in the Lake Michigan Book Press studio using the Japanese suminagashi technique. The effect is reminiscent of a topographical map, with wavy concentric circles.

Each suminagashi notebook will look very different as each one is marbled on request, making it an original piece.
