[BKARTS] Pocket sketch book

Re. Kats sketch books
I make sketch books for traveling and use a thick leather (boot leather)
for the cover and sew the sections in with a long stitch that shows on
the spine.  Before sewing I use a spoke shave to thin the leather where
the fold either side of the spine will occur. Sometimes  I add an end
paper that is the same size as the leather  and sew through it at the
same time.
These feel flexible and stand up to traveling well.
