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.

This is not like any other journal you've ever seen.As the title suggests, Keri Smith asks her readers to literally wreck the journal: poke holes in its pages, take it into the shower and rub dirt into the pages are just some of the suggestions. Great fun and something for kids to do that doesn't require technology! - Julie (QBD)
A beautifully chaotic way of unleashing your creativity, Wreck This Journal breaks all the rule by making none. The prompts guide you into creating your own unique masterpiece while utterly destroying it. Paint, glue, sew, tear and throw to your hearts content. An excellent choice for any creative person, someone who thinks outside of the box or anyone who just wants something different. - Leesa (QBD)
