A Notebook-Lover’s (Note)Book

Books_lyndabarry What It Is

Art MoCo
recommends this new book by Lynda Barry. I think it looks like a lot of fun.  Here's the write-up:

What It Is by cartoonist Lynda Barry is not only a
collage-type journal that reflects some of the material she uses in the
creative writing workshops she holds, but also chock full of classic
Lynda Barry style. The book is designed to get those creative juices
flowing and unleash memory and the imagination. There are gems
scattered throughout the book, such as "The thing I call 'my mind'
seems to be kind of like a landlord that doesn't really know its
tenants." Or how about "Does your imagination know what year it is?"
The theme of this inspirational book is "the ordinary is
extraordinary," certainly something that has been at the core of
Barry's comics over the years. This book will make you want to reach
for a big, blank book and fill it.

Something else for your wish list?

  1. I have this, and it’s really interesting! I bought one copy for a friend for her birthday, and couldn’t resist getting a copy for myself.
