i’m such a horrible artist
like most people treasure their sketchbooks and keep them as clean and safe as possible
but i use mine as an umbrella, as a people shield, as a weapon, as a pillow, and sometimes even a food tray when necessary
except you say yours is in good shape.
mine, on the other hand, i preemptively cover the binding in duct tape, and it still falls apart
Spiral bound ones are the only ones i buy anymore because of this.
