What this book is about
In this book, I'll show you how this project started in 2015 and finished in 2019, the methodology I used to identify the major elements of a sketchnote and the qualities that apply to those elements.
The first part is about how those qualities are categorized by adopting the Kano Model and how this categorization works and can be useful to the sketchnoter.
The second part of the book is more practical and go through some sketchnote's elements with insight and tips from my experience.
The third part has a philosophical twist and it's about the "energy flows" that impact the practice of sketchnote.
This book is not really a tutorial or a handbook, it is an inspirational book: the purpose of each page is to inspire the readers to think deeper, reflect and look in new ways to their sketchnotes and how they make them.
Finally, the concepts expressed in this book (particolarly in the first part) can be applied to domains other than the pure sketchnoting such as content strategy, visual communication and, why not, design too.
