Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A blank book is actually full of promise: the promise of becoming lively with recorded experiences and emotions. But, too often, we depend on words alone, and forgo all the wonderful options for making a journal visually meaningful. These simple, unintimidating decorating techniques can change all that forever, and turn your personal book into a real treasure. Color wash paper; rubber stamp designs; add secret pockets and tuck mementoes inside. Insert tabs for fast and easy reference, or for purely visual appeal. Include "windows" between pages to enhance the sense of curiosity and discovery. Attach sentimental bits of ephemera--rose petals from flower your sweetheart gave you for Valentine's Day or a ticket stub from a play you saw one unforgettable evening. Finally, see exactly how to "build" 10 different pages that perfectly marry form and content, complete with a photo from the author's own journal illustrating the beauty of each approach.

Synopsis:

"With the popularity of journaling and self-expression through writing, ..[the] author opens up a new dimension--the artist's vision of visual memories. Materials and techniques...begin the narrative; ...delves into the merits of paints and pens and stamps but also advocates different kinds of everyday supply kits as take-alongs. Most of the book is devoted to the how-tos, from customizing a blank book to avoiding the straight and narrow....Two-to three page side-bars hightlight specific genres, such as pillow books, nature journals, and illuminated manuscripts. Ten sample pages feature such methods as mapping, storytelling and information gathering. Consider this a superscript above all other entries."--"Booklist.

Synopsis:

10 different applications for a blank book are explained and illustrated with sample pages from the author's own journals.
