The Scribble Diary: My Brain Right Now Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illustrator and designer Adam Turnbull started documenting his creative ideas on pieces of paper that inspired him: photographs, postcards, envelopes, anything. He began binding small books of scrap paper to paste these items in, discovering that the canvas he originally used helped shape more ideas. And soand#160;Noted came to life: an interactive journal that features images of things to record ideas on, from letterhead and guest checks to the palms of our hands, napkins, or a matchbook.

Along with striking black-and-white images of common items, Noted encourages readers with subtle, open-ended, and random prompts, facts, and quotes. The results will be as unique as the usersand#8217; own experiences . . . When viewing a blank matchbook, one reader may design a restaurant logo while another may reminisce about a romantic candlelit dinner. A blank wall could elicit a rendering of street art, a piece of fiction about the Berlin Wall, or a political message for the masses.

Synopsis:

As adults, weve learned to represent ourselves in a manner thats pleasing to others—no gaffes, bits of weirdness, or embarrassing moments. But that leaves us very little space to speak our own truths freely, beyond how they might be viewed by others. Burn After Writing challenges you to answer the question: How honest can you really be with only you watching?

This “secret diary” for proper grown-ups pushes the limits, flirts with fears, and challenges you to play a game of Truth or Dare with yourself. In a society where “share” is everything, Burn After Writing goes against the grain and encourages you to “share” nothing!

Synopsis:

Welcome to your own playful, personal doodling space.

Release your thoughts.

Make a memory collage.

Draw your dreams.

Reflect on your day.

What’s in your brain right now?
