Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illustrator and designer Adam Turnbull started documenting his creative ideas on any piece of paper that inspired him: a photograph, a postcard, an envelope... He began binding small books made up of these pieces and discovered 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 or a guest check to the palm of the hand, a napkin, 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:

Think of this book as Pinterest for the inner soul.

All Lovely Things asks readers to to consider who they are by way of the diverse items they surround themselves with. Through simple, illustrated prompts, readers are encouraged to create object-based portraits of themselves, or people they know, admire, or imagine. Whether it's a favorite childhood toy, a piece of clothing worn on a first date, or a book that shaped who they are today, readers will create sketches, collage images, or record descriptions of the key objects in a life. They'll also find several completed portraits throughout for inspiration.

Drawing attention to objects not as mere possessions or shallow stuff, but as fascinating companions in the world that help us develop a unique sense of self, All Lovely Things is a celebration of the way we make objects and how objects make us.

Synopsis:

From the creator of Wreck This Journal, an exploration into the creative process and chance...

Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, youll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, youll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polkadots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it “pretty,” and so on.

The results: youll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.

I drew in my lists instead of writing them in words, and looking back at this book has been immensely satisfying. The way the journal feels is very slick and crisp too. This makes a great present for birthdays or for yourself, if you are a fan of owning or giving a fun, creative present that will be different for every person who has one.
