This review is from: Artist Journal Workshop (Paperback)
This book feels a bit like a school 'show and tell' rather than a useful resource for the US-led idea of visual journalling. The chapters are a series of very rudimentary demonstrations along the lines of 'I did this , you could do it too' and while Cathy Johnson herself offers many good tips on materials and techniques, other artists' contributions are more superficial. The chief defect of this book is that it doesn't actually offer any methods for making your own journals, - it gives half a page to a list of commercially produced sketchbooks, and refers to a separately available dvd. Surely the whole point of the book is to encourage readers to be as creative as possible - so I didn't find it of much use !
