On the heels of his internationally successful first book, 1 Page at a Time, graphic designer, artist, author and illustrator Adam J. Kurtz delivers another intimate and engaging journal for anyone who loves to explore ideas, record thoughts and feelings, and capture those fleeting but amazing moments of everyday life. Unlike a typical journal, this book can be opened up to any page, encouraging and engaging time and time again through continued use. Rather than simply complete tasks and turn pages, you are encouraged to leave your mark, and if you land on the same page days or weeks later, you can review, reflect, and revise your previous response.  Like 1 Page at a Time, this fun and uplifting book will delight readers who have taste for quirky observations, offbeat humor, and a charming element of surprise—along with anyone looking for a daily pick-me-up.show more

It saves me so much money on therapy and is way more fun anyway. Stay in, order a pizza and scribble your way out of that deep dark hole." –Michelle Branch, musician “Adam J.

He reminds us that creativity is the coolest of all resources--infinite, fun, free--and that we are blessed to have it.” –Melissa Broder, author of So Sad Todayshow more
