Product Description

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!

Praise for Wreck This Journal

"Not gonna lie, this is probably the coolest journal you’ll ever see. . . . Wreck This Journal is here to inspire you." —Buzzfeed

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

"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." —D*I*Y 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 behavior we are so often told to get over. You won’t be disappointed." —Kristine Marie Babauta, Marianas Variety
