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.

Synopsis:

The nifty-sized follow-up to the international bestseller Wreck This Journal—perfect for die-hard wreckers wherever they are in the world!

Featuring dozens of new activities as well as some of the most popular prompts from the original, Wreck This Journal Everywhere will have you travelling the city streets and country byways, filling the pages with man-made and natural objects, recording what you see, drawing, doodling — and destroying pages as you go. Perfect for sliding in your pocket or stuffing in your bag, Wreck This Journal Everywhere is the ideal creative companion!

Synopsis:

What kind of world would you like to inhabit?

To imagine something different, better, or more interesting is to push the existing world into a state of change. Some of the greatest revolutionary acts of our time came to be because someone had the courage to imagine something new.

In The Imaginary World of…, Keri Smith asks readers to imagine something new: a unique world of their own making.

Readers start by creating a list of everything to which theyre drawn: things they love and collect, colors, shapes, ideas, people, and creatures that fascinate them. The items in the list will become the building blocks for their imaginary worlds, used to create texture and establish a foundation for the new place theyll begin to inhabit. Readers will then be prompted to think about landscape, place names, maps, currency, residents, logos, foods, histories, and more for their world.

An indispensable guide for artists, dreamers, activists, and kids of all ages, The Imaginary World of… will encourage readers to become revolutionaries of everyday life, chronicling the possibilities in the brave new worlds they envision.

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."
