Description
From the internationally bestselling creator of Wreck This Journal, a guide to building your own perfect world.
In The Imaginary World of..., Keri Smith asks readers to imagine something new: a unique world of their own making.
Readers start by creating a list of everything to which they're drawn: things they love and collect, colors, shapes, ideas, people, and creatures that fascinate them. The items in the list will become the building blocks for their imaginary worlds, used to create texture and establish a foundation for the new place they'll begin to inhabit. Readers will then be prompted to think about landscape, place names, maps, currency, residents, logos, foods, histories, and more for their world.
An indispensable guide for artists, dreamers, activists, and explorers of all ages, The Imaginary World of... will encourage readers to become revolutionaries of everyday life, chronicling the possibilities in the brave new worlds they envision.
