Very good idea book peek into the art journals of a number of artists What s particularly interesting about this book is it was published in 2004 apparently the term art journal was just gaining traction. Indulge your artistic intuition as you plan and create vivid and revealing visual diaries and sketchbooks That is from the back of the book and I think it really is a good summary for the book.I did like this book but I liked itfor the images then the actual written words This book gives some tips and techniques but in a much different way then Collage Discovery Collage Discovery gave step by step clear instructions on good techniques Artist Journals Sketchbooks givesa gener Indulge your artistic intuition as you plan and create vivid and revealing visual diaries and sketchbooks That is from the back of the book and I think it really is a good summary for the book.I did like this book but I liked itfor the images then the actual written words This book gives some tips and techniques but in a much different way then Collage Discovery Collage Discovery gave step by step clear instructions on good techniques Artist Journals Sketchbooks givesa general overview of techniques but not real indepth step by step instructions Such as Collage Discovery gives you several different ways to do transfers and actual how to step for each Artists Journal Sketchbook tells you that there are 9 ways to do transfers and give you 1 actual step by step how to of transfers So for me it wasn t really a how to book but a book that says there are lots of different techniques a person could use in their journals or sketchbook It is a book of this is about your exploration to uncover your creativity making your artist journal or sketchbook something new and fresh.I do need to say the images in this book are inspiring all on the own Each image really gave me tons of ideas that just keep spinning to new ones So just for the images alone this book was worth picking up.I have read this book 4 times and the last being Jan 25, 2009 A beautiful full colour book with lots of photos and ideas for journalling I m sticking with 3 stars because, although pretty and interesting to look at, many of the ideas require expensive materials or art experience I like to tend toward dollar store materials and inexpensive, household items.If you are looking to create a journal as a gift for someone else, this book would be a great starting point as there is a whole chapter on making your own from unique materials ie cloth, metal, etc.
