SketchTravel - 71 artists, one sketchbook, thousands of miles = building libraries

Off-Ramp host John Rabe talks with animation expert Charles Solomon and Disney artist Paul Felix about "SketchTravel." It's a new book in which 70+ artists, including Felix, collaborated, each drawing on a page of a single sketchbook that went hand-to-hand from artist to artist around the world.

The artists got synergy and a chance to work with people -- sometime their heroes -- they may never have met before. Readers can see how different artists of different ages, backgrounds, countries, and media attack a single problem. And kids in SE Asia get libraries and improved literacy through Room to Read's South East Asia programs.
