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.

If you have any question regarding this tutorial don't hesitate to post it here.
