We show you the sheets of a sketchbook by T.F. Šimon. 
The green cardboard cover is nothing special, but the contents are a real treasure!
The sheets measure  267 x 207 mm.  Only the 25 sheets that contain works of art are published on this page. 
Sometimes we show you only the drawing, sometimes the whole sheet. 
Some drawings are of particular interest for they were intented for known works of art.
