Voyage of a tiny sketchbook

A tiny sketchbook embarked upon a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean bound for New York. It was due to take up a position within the Brooklyn Art Library as part of a diminutive collection in the (Tiny) Sketchbook Project, but although it arrived at its destination before the postal deadline, and tracking indeed confirmed its arrival, the little book was never catalogued, its fate remains unknown. It would never receive its library reference number, or join its peers within a tiny suitcase, visiting exotic locations on the other side of the world. All that remains are some scans (below) from its pages made just before this tiny sketchbook departed for an uncertain future and unforeseen disappearance, never to return again to the studio.
