The Wander society by Keri Smith( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several years ago when Keri Smith, bestselling author of Wreck This Journal, discovered cryptic handwritten notations in a worn copy of Walt Whitman{19}s Leaves of Grass, her interest was piqued. Little did she know at the time that those simple markings would become the basis of a years-long, life-changing exploration into a mysterious group known only as The Wander Society, as well as the subject of this book. Within these pages, you'll find the results of Smith's research: A guide to the Wander Society, a secretive group that holds up the act of wandering, or unplanned exploring, as a way of life. You'll learn about the group's mysterious origins, meet fellow wanderers through time, discover how wandering feeds the creative mind, and learn how to best practice the art of wandering, should you choose to accept the mission
Mess : the manual of accidents and mistakes by Keri Smith( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Your whole life you've been taught to avoid making a mess: Try to keep everything under control, color inside the lines, make it perfect, and at all costs, avoid contact with things that stain. This book asks you to do the opposite of what you have been taught. Think of it as your own personal rumpus room. A place to let loose, to trash, to spew, to do the things you are not allowed to do in the "real world." It's time to make a mess. The only three rules you'll find in this book: do not try to make something beautiful. do not think too much (there is no "wrong"), continue under all circumstances. --Publisher
This is not a book by Keri Smith( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Particular Books are very excited to welcome the creative talents of best-selling author Keri Smith. Her books are huge word-of-mouth hits in the US: where four years after publication, Keri's first book Wreck This Journal continues to sell a thousand copies a week ... This is Not a Book takes a uniquely skewed look at the purpose and function of 'a book', Keri Smith asks readers to creatively examine all the different ways This Is Not a Book can be used. With intriguing prompts, readers will discover that this book can be: A secret message - tear out a page, write a note on it for a stranger, and leave it in a public place. A recording device - have everyone you contact today write their name in the book. An instrument - create as many sounds as you can using the book, like flipping the pages fast or slapping the cover. This Is Not a Book will engage readers by having them define everything a book can be by asking, 'If it's not a book, what is it then?' - with a kaleidoscope of possible answers
The pocket scavenger by Keri Smith( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, you'll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, you'll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polkadots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it 'pretty, ' and so on. The results: you'll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you"

Mach dieses Buch fertig : erschaffen ist zertören by Keri Smith( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nichts reinkritzeln. Keine Knicke machen. Nichts draufkleckern. Und bloss nicht im Regen liegen lassen ... Wir haben es alle von klein auf gelernt: Bücher muss man gut behandeln. Dass es aber unheimlich Spass macht, genau das nicht zu tun, zeigt dieses ideensprühende Buch: Bohre mit einem Bleistift Löcher in diese Seite. Dokumentiere dein Abendessen. Archiviere hier die Briefmarken all deiner Post. Schreibe mit dem Stift im Mund. Tobe dich auf dieser Seite aus, wenn du richtig sauer bist. Jede Seite dieses Buches wirkt wie ein Befreiungsschlag und setzt ungeahnte kreative Energien frei. Schaffen ist zerstören, sagt Keri Smith
The guerilla art kit by Keri Smith( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are living in a golden age of self-expression. The explosion of user-created content on blogs and social networking sites moved Time magazine to name "You" their 2006 person of the year. But while we may be spending a lot more time in virtual worlds, we have not lost the urge to make our physical world more meaningful. By leaving art and ideas in public places, you can affect someone's day, change their mood or their mind, and maybe even change the world in the process! The Guerilla Art Kit shows how small artistic acts can start a revolution. Keri Smith, noted author of Living Out Loud and the blog Wish Jar Journal, uses her unique drawing and handwriting style to help anyone find and release their inner artist or activist. This visually exciting activity book--full of step-by-step exercises, cut-out projects, sticker ideas, and more--has both fun assignments and handy tips to help you unleash your creative energy into the streets, where you can really make an impact. From the quick exercises--leaving books for strangers to find, chalking quotes on the sidewalk--to the more involved--making a "wish tree," guerilla gardening, or making your own stencils--The Guerilla Art Kit contains everything you need to put your message out into the world

Jeder weiss, wie gerne Kinder unterwegs Dinge sammeln. Alle Kinder sind frei nach Pippi Langstrumpf Sachensucher. Hier ist endlich das ideale Buch für ihre Leidenschaft. So entdeckt man die Welt in zwei Schritten. Der erste Schritt: Losziehen und Sachen suchen. Benutzte Briefumschläge, die Zahl 5, Federn, Tickets, neun Kreise, Moos, ein Stückchen roten Faden, das Bild eines Elefanten oder etwas aus dem eigenen Geburtsjahr. 72 Sachen wollen gesucht, gefunden und im Buch mit Fundort und -zeit in ein paar Zeilen dokumentiert werden. Schritt zwei: Diese Fundstücke bearbeiten und verwandeln. Dazu dreht der Sachensucher das Buch auf den Kopf und pickt sich einen (oder mehrere) der 208 Bearbeitungsvorschläge nach dem Prinzip Zufall heraus: dem Ding einen interessanten Titel geben, es aus einem anderen Material nachbauen, etwas Gelbes hinzufügen, das Fundstück halbieren, in ein Zeichen verwandeln oder in ein Monster. Ein paar Bonus-Seiten liefern Tipps für weitere Varianten von Sachensuchen: die schnelle Suche (10 Sachen in 10 Minuten), die Suche nach Geräuschen, nach einem Objekt in allen möglichen Varianten. Damit die Suche niemals enden muss
