sorry these are not the greatest photos. I literally have minutes to put this up so it’s the best I could do before someone wakes up and needs to feed again. hopefully this will tease you enough that you need to see it in person.
after receiving it yesterday my husband made me some tea and forced me to go outside by myself and enjoy the moment (after dealing with a colicky baby for the last few weeks). so I had a nice hour with it and I feel so very proud and in love with the results. this one feels different than the last few books, I really went out on a limb with it and so I truly have NO IDEA how it will be received. I think if you already respond to my work, you will really enjoy it. REALLY. I MEAN IT. as always, my test for it is “Would I HAVE to purchase this if I saw it in a bookstore?” and the answer is most definitely “YES!!!” I so wish I had time to fill in the pages myself right now. but I have to leave it for you to do.
I wrote a little teaser for it:
coming this September…
What do secret orders, nature explorers, imaginary landmarks, underground publishing, buried treasure and secret disguises have in common?
They all feature heavily in “Finish this Book*”, the newest title by Keri Smith (creator of Wreck this Journal). Part mystery, part journal, part activity book “Finish This Book” invites the user into a secret world of their own making. The only question is “What will that world look like when you are done?” You have to complete it to find out. This book does not exist without you.
