THUD! That's the sound this book makes when dropped on the table top or night stand where it will inevitably reside. It's a big, fat book, and it will take awhile to go through it. This volume collects all four of the original sketchbook diaries, PLUS a whole extra year, AND has a bonus 32 page (16 in the front, and 16 in the back) color supplement of all new material. The Sketchbook Diaries are a unique work and this collection is a great value. To learn more, visit our Kochalka Sketchbook Diary Page.
