Barbara M Stecher developed the concept of sketchbooking to better observe things that interest her. She teaches how sketchbooking works, how to get started, the basics of sketchbooking, and finally, sketchbooking on your trip. The epilogue is title "Sketchbookers Reporting In". Sketchbooking is an attitude, an approach to sketching that means you carry a book and watch for moments to use it. There are often times to sketch if you have your kit at hand. Sketchbooking also means that you set up the book to be like a published book, with a title page, chapters, etc. The book is totally self-explanatory, now or years from now.
