Marjolein Bastin’s passion for the natural world saturates each page of Inspired by Nature Sketchbook, and kindred spirits will adore this unique, beautifully illustrated sketchbook.
Known for her charming, lush nature illustrations, Marjolein has kept detailed sketchbooks of the things she encounters in nature since she was a young girl. This book features a number of her personal sketches side-by-side with the fully wrought, exquisitely detailed pieces of art they inspired. Blank pages, with hand-drawn borders by Marjolein, are included after each illustrated spread for users to document their own drawings and thoughts. A durable cover, an envelope in the back for nature finds, and a bound ribbon bookmark make this sketchbook both beautiful and useful.
