Fashionary, a fashion sketchbook line, has released its first-ever “Shoe Design” book. With the release, Fashionary is expanding its concept from exclusively womenswear to include footwear. “Shoe Design,” a complete handbook and encyclopedia for footwear designers, includes a “Shoe Style Library” with more than 300  styles featured.

Inside the Encyclopedia section, Fashionary provides readers with information on everything from shoe measurements and the anatomy of a foot to manufacturing and shoe construction. The book also offers insight on shoe care, types of patterns, materials, shoe labels and trade fairs.

Whether it’s a slingback thong, platform or huarache, “Shoe Design”  includes 60 shoe templates, plus 12 shoe-last templates with different heel heights, toe shapes and footwear types for tracing and sketching.
