An artist's sketchbook is like a diary. There plans hatch, dreams simmer, problems resolve, and the sights and issues of the day get recorded. ``Under Cover: Artists' Sketchbooks," a sweetly intimate and revealing show at the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, invites the viewer into the scribblings and jottings of artists from the 17th century to the present.
