Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake- and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them).

Acclaimed illustrator Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts-poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, and more-in order to experience the true creative process. Readers discover a new way of art and journal making-and new ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

I have purchased 4 copies of "Wreck This Journal" for family members who wanted in on the fun. The prompts are creative and good fun. Mine now has doodles, lists, stickers from fruit, mailing labels, chocolate wrappers, colored sketches of garden and trellis plans, verses, short poems, wordplays, four-leaf clovers, and paint chips overstuffing and decorating its covers. My daughter threw hers down 5 floors in a stairwell twice on the way to her doctor's appt. She had to retrieve it each time and it made her laugh to be so silly. The journal suggests that you abuse it a little. We would all recommend this "journal."
