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

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.

Our customer reviews

I've always been the kind that don't really mess up my own books, thought getting this might help a little. However, I think the activities the pages are suggesting in the books are not that interesting. While I like writing and drawing random things on books, tearing them off and gluing them back sounds like a lot of work. I stopped at like the second activity as I realised most of the activities at the back requires a lot of gluing and tearing, I didn't quite like these and now it's just rotting in one corner. I'm not sure about you guys, but if you're the kind that likes playing around with papers maybe this might be the book for you. I think maybe I can't get past my own barriers.show more
