Creative Journals

  1. Wreck This Journal
    Keri Smith
    Perigee Books / Trade Paperback
    Our Price$10.99 Retail Price$15.00 Save 27% ($4.01)

Wreck This Journal is a creative, fun, and highly interactive way to step outside the box and throw yourself into the world of lived art. . .the opposite of traditional journaling.

Integrating subversive (and often destructive) actions-"fling coffee here" and "collect fruit stickers here," along with writing and drawing prompts like "document a boring event in detail" or "Sleep with the journal. Describe the experience here," this unique book will free readers of the compulsion to write neatly, keep the binding intact, and progress chronologically. Great for creative types itching for some sanctioned destruction, or for "Type As" who want to loosen up a bit!

    In this delightful volume of linguistic revelry, you can horse around with the animal metaphors that make poetry of everyday speech - as well as with the wheezy cliches that are all too conspicuous in our daily prose. Romp with the rhythms and rhymes of "Inky Pinky," and see if you can "Name that Bunch" - a prickle of porcupines? a rash of dermatologists? But beware: you can lose points for laughing in "Fictionary."
