As I think I’ve stated here before, I have an ever growing pile of sketchbooks. My shelves have reached capacity, unless I can get rid of other things. I also have no one to which to bequeath them. My solution: give individual sketches to family and friends who want them. Those remaining will become part of my Art Abandonment project(s).
Today I culled through most of my 2012 and 2013 sketchbooks. I am keeping the first two sketchbooks after joining Urban Sketchers, though.
I’ve made a gallery of sorts on the walls of an interior hall. No daylight to fade the sketches. My plan is to rotate the display as I distribute those hanging. I’ve used removable plastic hooks, string and tiny clothes pin clips.
I created a Flickr album: “Available to a good home… among my family and friends.”

If you have a Flickr account, just comment on the image if you want it. If you don’t have a Flickr account, comment here with the name. My naming convention starts with the date (2012 0721), then a title (WA State History Museum).
