Book Description

1 July 2008 1000
Journals offer their makers a safe place to dream, doodle, rant, and reinvent themselves. They offer viewers rich, visual inspiration. There is a fascination with these revealing and often beautiful pages of self-exploration and personal expression. Journals offer a tantalizing, voyeuristic view of an interior life. This will be the first book to offer over 1000 journals in one eye-catching, visual format, and should attract a wide swathe of artists who fully embrace or experiment with this medium.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Artist Journal pages 22 Oct 2010
By Lisa
My daughter needed a similar book for her art course but when we had a look on amazon this looked much better. I actually thought it would look like the picture, not at all, these pictures were the inspiration for the book and just someone else's journal but my daughter loved it. She took it to college and all her friends asked the details so they could buy it. All her tutors came and looked at it. Then other teachers came from other medias and asked to borrow it for their classes saying how fantastic it was for inspiration. Without a doubt this is the best Art book my daughter has had and her tutors agree that they will be telling their future pupils to buy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful book 14 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a "how-to make journal pages", then this isn't the book for you. If you are looking for a collection of beautiful artwork and inspiration, then buy this book. It's a gorgeous book with many different types of journal pages but it does not tell you HOW to make them yourself. But definitely enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prompts to get you pumped! 14 Sep 2009
The author treats the subject by letting the journal pages themselves do the talking! There's very little text but over 300+ pages display 1000 journal pages. It is great to keep as a reference guide and use as a source of inspiration and creativity when you need it. The first six pages of the book are text and talk about 'why journal' and 'prompts to get you pumped'. It is just so exciting and really gets you thinking about all sorts! The title 'prompts to get you pumped' is great and it does just that. I'm constantly looking through the pages and every time I notice something new.Art journalling is fairly new to me, so this book was a great way to see so many art journal pages in book for loads of inspirational ideas. I'm sure this book will inspire anyone to try art journaling. There's so many different ways to create pages and ways of using art journalling

2.0 out of 5 stars Homogenous collection of personal journals 25 Sep 2012
By Schnack
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone who has recently started "art journalling" I have purchased a few books about techniques and some showcasing other artists' work, hoping for inspiration. I had high hopes for this book based on the reviews and the "look inside" (always much appreciated). Unfortunately I was terribly UNDERwhelmed by the variety and character of the work shown here. I kept turning the pages and encountering very similar work - almost as if half of the artists had attended a workshop together and employed the same techniques to their pages. Techniques like drawing wavy lines and hand-lettering variable sized text to fit in the lines; stamping 'headlines' in alphabet stamps; marking out 'calendar squares' on a page and writing short daily entries over a month; lots and lots and lots of pages covered in colour washes with inspirational words or quotes pasted on them....
And one of the last things I'd expect to ever hear myself complain about - but the majority of artists featured (at least 90%) are female. Generally injecting more female power into any perspective is a positive, however in this case I feel that it contributes to the sense of homogeneity that pervades this collection. The work here is very skewed towards people who are making their personal journals artistic, rather than artists who are keeping personal journals. For me, this was probably the key to the problem. If the title were "1000 ARTISTIC Journal Pages" it would be much more accurate. I'm not keen to say who is an artist and who isn't - we all have some creative ability and should be encouraged to express it. I would not call myself an "artist" (I could probably be defined as someone trying to make a personal journal artistic!) but my heart yearned for more variety and inspiration than I found in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars colourful, inspirational, just what I was after 17 May 2011
By janeyd
This book is visually so appealing, very colourful... gorgeous graphic images, providing an insight into the creative minds of many journallers. It is definitely giving me inspiration and the confidence to proceed with this. Each page has at least two images but there is very little text, and no description of the techniques used .. so it's not a manual... just very interesting, I would recommend this to anyone starting to do their own journal pages
