Using a sketchbook to work on drafts for a larger art project is a clear usage choice for such a book. However, sketches can go beyond the artistic realm, as these pages uncovered from notebooks belonging to the legendary explorers Lewis and Clark prove.
Check out how these two adventurers used quick yet detailed sketching to cover the botany, animals, landscapes and sociology (just to name a few topics!) they encountered in their travels in the American frontier.
Historian Daniel Jackson has referred to Lewis and Clark as “the writingest explorers of their time,” but he would have been wise to call them the “sketchingest” as well!
