Happy 10th Birthday, Sketchnote Handbook!

The Sketchnote Handbook turns 10 on November 30th, 2022. It seems crazy to made that 10 years ago I was reaching the finish line with my first book — with no idea if it would sell or not.

It was an intense 9 months from signing the contract to writing, illustrating, managing, designing, shooting video for, and creating production artwork for that book, but it was also a blast.


I remember reminding myself to be happy with the progress of each day, and eventually I pulled it off.


Of course it was the work of a small, smart team around me that helped make it all happen. My wife for her support, editors, fellow sketchnoters, and plenty more people who aren’t even in the credits of the book made The Sketchnote Handbook happen.

Celebrating 10 Years
So, we’re celebrating with a limited-edition Happy Birthday sticker I designed for the book and Peachpit has created a special offer on the Handbook, Workbook, and Video.

This set of books makes a great gift for new sketchnoters… or the perfect way to replace YOUR lent out the copies of the books that haven’t been returned.

If you already own a physical copy of The Sketchnote Handbook and would love a digital copy, you can get the eBook and the video for your iPad.

The offer: 2 together for 50% off
I figured the best way to make the book accessible was to offer 2 for half off and we were able to do it. We’ve generated the code HAPPY10 to give buyers 50% off when they buy any 2 of The Sketchnote Handbook, The Sketchnote Workbook, or The Sketchnote Handbook Video, together. The code covers print and eBook editions.

If you’re interested, more details are here on my site.
