Drawing a closed book
In this tutorial I will show you how to sketch this closed book. There is another tutorial explaining How to create a closed book with Illustrator .
So to draw a closed book you have first to draw a rectangle.
Then convert it to a 3 demential box.
Add two arcs on the left side of the box for a books’ binding and erase the unnecessary lines.
Add another line on the right side of the book – it will give it more depth.
We've created a binder of the book.
Now what’s left is to draw its pages.
Draw two lines parallel to the binder but a bit shorter.
Connect them with two arches.
Your closed book is ready.
