Ken Carbone Curiously Curious Journals

The importance of artist journals and sketch books 

Journals are one of the most important tools for an artist/scientist/musician... to slow down and capture inspiration. The ideas generated may not be ready for development but can be re-discovered at a later time. The Curiously Curious journals of Ken Carbone are a perfect example. After witnessing the private journals of Paul Gauguin, Carbone began creating journals for his ideas and the happenings around him. Carbone uses a basic store bought journal and transforms the book by adding a leather cover which he customizes using leather dyes.
