Drawing an open book

In this tutorial I will show you how to draw an open book. Every new step will be represented by a punctured line.

1. Draw a basic trapeze and divide it in the middle.

2.Create another, smaller trapeze inside the first one.
3.Draw short diagonals in the corners of the smaller trapeze and connect them as shown.

4. Connect the corners to the center of the book with curvy lines as shown.
5. Draw a small triangle at the base of the central line - make sure its base is curvy.

6. Erase the unnecessary lines.
7. In the "pages part" draw some curvy lines so the book looks like it has some actual pages.

Thats all. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
