  6. Hello! I am the author of 1000 Artist Journal Pages, and several doodling books, and I am now working on a follow-up to 1000 AJP and am looking for artists to submit journal or sketchbook pages. I've seen your journal pages on the internet and am wondering if you'd be interested in participating.

    Here are the guidelines:

    Abrams/STC Craft is a quality publisher of fine craft books including sewing, knitting, and art journaling.

    We are seeking the following kinds of journal pages:
    • Sketched or doodled pages
    • More is More: using a wide variety of mediums, with images and text
    • Collaborative: projects that are considered round robins or worked on by more than one person
    • Graphic approach: Emphasis on text as art
    • Raw journals: Edgy, truthful and extreme visual journaling
    • Mixed media: Using paper, paint, and/or fiber materials for construction
