The Threadless Sketchbook

If you enjoyed the 76 Threadless Designs from Sketch To Print post then you will definitely be interested to know that the Threadless community has just released a Sketchbook containing classic Threadless designs. I say “Threadless community” because this really is a collaborative project that started with the Threadless blogging community. Here’s the full story:

It all started when MurrayMullet (Phil Jones) posted a blog on the Threadless forum, asking alumni for sketches of their printed designs. To quote the blog, “They can be just the idea, initial attempt or napkin drawings.”

The blog blew up and people were posting “like crazy and sh!t,” says speedyjvw (Joe Van Wetering). In fact, it got so bonkers, another Threadless dood, Ian Lieno thought it would be cool to compile all of this into a book, with ALL of the funds going towards Bloggerraiser. What’s Bloggerraiser? Well, for the n00bs, its an annual Threadless blogger-driven fundraiser that brings folks from all over to our annual meet-up in September, aka our Family Reunion.

The book is an amazing compilation of original sketches of over 120 Threadless shirts from 66 different artists, with the forward written by Mr. Jake Nickell himself. Pick up the book over on Lulu for $19.99. Awesome job, Ian, and thanks to all who contributed!

The Threadless Sketchbook is available in paperback form and is 120 pages long. You can purchase the Sketchbook from Lulu for $19.99.
