The Sketchbook Project is a crowd-sourced library of over 30,000 sketchbooks (and counting) submitted by people of all ages and backgrounds from all over the world. Organised continent by continent and featuring work from 135 different countries, The Sketch Book Project World Tour will showcase the best and brightest work from hundreds of artists. Along with introductions to each continent section, mini-bios will accompany each artist's work to provide context to the art. Page by page, the Sketchbook Project World Tour will reveal a unique and intimate look into the inner-creative workings of everyday people around the globe. The Sketchbook Project World Tour's publication will coincide with the launch of the Sketchbook Project's 2015 Summer Tour across America. Potential foreword by This is Colossal's founder and editorial director, Christopher Jobson.
