Compras recentes

Algures aqui no blog está um post em que eu digo que comprei um Wreck This Journal  ( Suitable for those who have wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook, this illustrated book features 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) da Keri Smith. Bem...ainda não o terminei mas é uma grande ajuda para ser mais criativa! 

Esta semana quando fui à Fnac encontrei outros livros da mesma autora que são outro apelo à criatividade! Adoro-os de morte!

O Mess: 

Your whole life you've been taught to avoid making a mess: Try to keep everything under control, color inside the lines, make it perfect, and at all costs, avoid contact with things that stain.

This book asks you to do the opposite of what you have been taught. Think of it as your own personal rumpus room. A place to let loose, to trash, to spew, to do the things you are not allowed to do in the "real world." It's time to make a mess.

The only three rules you'll find in this book:
1. Do not try to make something beautiful.
2. Do not think too much. (There is no "wrong.")
3. Continue under all circumstances.

E o This is not a Book: 

A curious, engaging, and creative rethinking of what a book can be, from the creator of Wreck this Journal.

In this uniquely skewed look at the purpose and function of “a book,” Keri Smith offers an illustrated guide that asks readers to creatively examine all the different ways This Is Not a Book can be used. With intriguing prompts, readers will discover that the book can be:

A secret message—tear out a page, write a note on it for a stranger, and leave it in a public place.

A recording device—have everyone you contact today write their name in the book.

An instrument—create as many sounds as you can using the book, like flipping the pages fast or slapping the cover.

This Is Not a Book will engage readers by having them define everything a book can be by asking, “If it’s not a book, what is it then?”—with a kaleidoscope of possible answers.

Estes três que mencionei podem ser comprados juntos na Wreck this box! Mas acho que só conseguem comprar a caixa online (ou então tentem a Fnac). 

Olá Claudinha dos trabalhos manuais! =) 
Se também tiverem um destes partilhem que eu gosto muito de ver o que os outros fazem!
