The Walls Notebook is a journal of blank walls and public spaces to doodle and paint on by New York photographer Sherwood Forlee.

A blank city wall with a fresh coat of paint – is there anything more appealing to doodlers, dreamers, and graffiti artists? Walls Notebook invites you to indulge your inner vandal without the risk of jail time. Here are 160 pages of wall photographs for notes, sketches, drawings, and defacement, all packaged in a delightful lay-flat flexi-bind paperback.
