An indispensable guide for artists, dreamers, activists, and kids of all ages, The Imaginary World of

Praise for Wreck This Journal:
“I've kept journals before, but have never written in them as frequently as I write in my Wreck This Journal. I struggle to put it down. Instead of blank lined pages, each page has a different task. Wreck This Journal is great for inspiration; it gives you tasks that are thought-provoking rather than pages of endless blank lines. It is a great way to pass the time and a great gift for anyone, no matter how young or old.”
“Wreck This Journal encourages you to stop fretting about quality and start relishing the artistic process.”
“I love this book and the playful way that Keri Smith teaches people the act of creating by putting you right on the spot. Wreck This Journal is a fun, interactive book that you will want to work in every day. To create is to destroy and this book delivers.”
