1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 24 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: Visual Chronicles: The No-Fear Guide to Art Journals, Creative Manifestos and Altered Books (Paperback)
Firstly I should say that I am not a journaller - however I often buy books on this subject as they often contain good ideas that can be transferred to other media, or they are simply just beautiful to look at. In addition I recognise that people keep journals for a range of different reasons, all of which I feel are valid: a diary recording events or emotions, creative art, exploring (design) ideas, studying etc. Unfortunately the ideas and results portrayed in this book are such that I cannot see the point of them. The designs are too shallow to provide any insight, and too pictorially simplistic to provide any artistic interest. Some of the text is interesting, but not sufficient to warrent having bought the book. Overall very disappointing, and I would suggest only a complete beginner would derive any benefit from the contents.
