Keri Smith

  • « Détruire pour créer », telle est la devise de l'auteur qui propose sur 224 pages toute une série de défis créatifs à relever qui titillent l'imagination, stimulent l'intellect et les zygomatiques et apaisent les tensions quotidiennes !


    Ça peut être des consignes assez « simples » comme :

    - remplis cette page de cercles, - colorie cette page en entier, - trace des lignes sur cette page, - remplis cette page quand tu es vraiment en colère, - colle ici une page de journal et entoure les mots que tu préfères, - dessine de la main gauche.

    Mais aussi et surtout des instructions totalement délirantes, comme :

    - amène ton journal avec toi sous la douche, - frotte de la saleté sur cette page, - dors avec ton journal et décris cette expérience, - mâche cette page, etc.
    - trace des lignes lorsque tu es en bus, dans le train et en marchant, - balance ton crayon ou une balle recouverte de peinture sur cette cible (dessinée sur la page), - trouve le moyen d'intégrer ce journal à ta tenue d'aujourd'hui, - colle ici des mouches mortes.

    C'est un livre à remplir et à s'approprier où l'on laisse totalement libre court à son imagination car l'essentiel n'est pas de faire mot pour mot ce qui est dit sur le journal, mais de l'interpréter à sa manière.

    • 24 February 2016

    Surprenant et original, cet ouvrage invite à une lecture aussi active qu'interactive. Dans cette véritable invitation à l'aventure, des défis créatifs sont proposés au lecteur : dessins, écriture, décodage ou observation... le lecteur doit aiguiser ses sens et les mettre en pratique pour remplir les pages blanches et mener à bien sa mission : finir le livre ! Comme un détective en herbe, décryptant le monde qui l'entoure, le lecteur suit un entraînement de type agent secret : cryptage et décryptage de messages ; méthodes diverses pour aiguiser son sens de l'observation à partir du monde quotidien qui l'entoure.
    Un concept original qui s'inscrit dans la tendance du public à vouloir personnaliser ses objets (scrapbook, collage, coloriage...) afin de les rendre uniques. Un ouvrage richement illustré dont le design original imite, en le détournant, l'aspect d'un dossier classé top secret et d'un carnet de détective. Dans cette ambiance de film noir des années 1950, c'est le lecteur qui joue le rôle du détective privé.

Wreck This Journal is here to inspire you. -- Buzzfeed The internationally bestselling phenomenon with more than 10 million copies sold --and an excellent holiday gift!

With 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. To create is to destroy. Happy wrecking!

  • A deceptively simple adventure into the unknown using only paper, a pencil and a single line Wreck This Journal had a simple premise: destroy the book in all the ways you can imagine. The Line is even simpler: find pencil, start a line. As you move through the pages of Keri Smith's newest book, you'll be asked to let your line meander, explore the book's gutter, and jump around the edges of the pages. You'll hide your line, cut your line and even let someone else take over your line for a bit. The farther you get into the book, however, the more you'll discover that maybe things aren't as simple as they first seemed. The line has a mind of its own, and it's up to you to discover what's at the end of the line (hint: it's just the beginning).

  • Welcome to an all new-edition of Wreck This Journal, now in spectacular full color! Inside, you'll find prompts for painting, shredding, transforming, and unleashing your creativity. With a mix of new, altered, and favorite prompts, Wreck This Journal: Now in Color invites you to wreck with color: mixing colors to make mud, letting chance dictate your color choice, weaving with brightly colored strips of paper, and more.

  • The pocket scavenger

    Keri Smith

    From the internationally bestselling creator of Wreck This Journal, a scavenger hunt that leads you to explore your world and transform your findings through creativity and chance... Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger , youll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, youll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it pretty, and so on. The results: youll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is utterly unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.
