Overview

The special limited edition duct-tape cover of the international bestseller…

For anyone who's ever had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes this expanded edition of 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 and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts—poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more—in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

    A Must!

    This book was a ton of fun for my ten year old son. He could not put it down and it even came in handy on a long car ride. The book brings out your imagination and can even become a group activity..."hey mom, you have some coffee or gum I can use?" My seven year old daughter was very jealous and she "helped" her brother with a few of the pages; until she begged us to get her one of her own. So, we did!

    My teenage neice showed me her Wreck this Journal, and I fell in love. This is such a great tool for bringing out one's creativity, but also a definite "fun" thing... I feel it nurtures creativity and youthful thinking. I"m going to buy another one for a friend with two young boys, so they can get creative together.
