Wreck This Journal: To Create is to Destroy, Now with Even More Ways to Wreck! [9780141976143]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A new edition of Keri Smith's bestseller, with updated material.

'Wreck This Journal encourages you to stop fretting about quality and start relishing the artistic process.'  Oprah.com

Think of Wreck This Journal as the anarchist's Artist's Way - the book for those who've always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it.

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 featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake - and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and 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 with coffee, colouring outside the lines, and more - in order to experience the true creative process.

With Keri 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.

Praise for Wreck This Journal

'Smith’s journal is about destruction, asking readers to poke through pages, submerge them, attach photos and then deface them, and essentially revel in our 'mistakes'. The finished product - crumpled pages and sometimes doubled in size - is itself a masterpiece.'  BuzzFeed, Journals That Will Give Your Brain A Workout

'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.'  DIY Planner

'No matter where you start or where you end, there’s always something interesting to do. . . The book is an exploration into creativity.'  Buffalo News

'The ideal gift for artistic minded people, or not, for that matter, as what I love about this book is that there is no right or wrong. Neat, messy, colorful, dark, you can wreck however you want.'  Hawwa, etc.

'I’ve kept journals before, but have never written in them as frequently as I write in my Wreck This Journal. It 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.'  Teen Ink

'Wreck this Journal makes a great gift for someone who’s going through a stressful time, needs a form of release, or anyone who could use a few minutes of fun.'  Jactionary

'Wreck This Journal encourages you to experiment and have fun. . . . Flip to any page in the book and you will find a prompt: fun prompts, destructive prompts, creative prompts to help your creative juices flow.'  Craft Critique

'Calling all bookworms and creative doodlers, Wreck This Journal is the perfect book to spruce up your summer. . . . It’s a wonderful stress reliever and brings out the inner childish behaviour we are so often told to get over. You won’t be disappointed.'  Kristine Marie Babauta, Marianas Variety
