    This book indeed introduces a number of "alternative" art journal formats, however, I didn't find any of them particularly useful or compelling. There were a few alternative book formats (envelope, Tibetan), boxes to construct, and multiple "decks" of card-type collections. Any might have been interesting, theoretically, if they had been used to house complementary, unusual contents, but they were not. Similarly, I wasn't wowed by the media techniques the author introduced, such as rendering (a [...]

    "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." That's a quote from Albert Einstein. I've always believed that quote, so I've tried to look at Margaret Peot's book about art journaling as a way to help me think of new ways to keep a writer's journal. The activities she suggests are stimulating (and fun) for anyone who is creating books. And it's obvious from Alternative Art Journals that Margaret believes everyone can be creative. There is a deep kindne [...]

    This book contains a ton of interesting ideas, but for some reason I found it all rather intimidating. I'm sure I'll come back to this book, but for now I'm just going to try some stuff, without thinking about longevity or a unifying theme

    This book includes a wide and creative variety of types of art journals, focusing on unusual journal types. It sparked my creativity: one can create an art journal from almost any type of material! Some of the journal-creating techniques are involved, ones I wouldn't take the time to try, and this cost this book a star in my rating. However, even those concepts inspire other, more simple ideas I think I would do. I enjoyed perusing this book!

    If you keep art journals and are interested in some of the ways you could create outside the book format, this book has some interesting ideas. I guess I was expecting more information on alternative journals than this book conveyed however. There were too many sections on page prepping, etc. However if you are a beginner art journaler, this might be just the introduction you need.

    This book is as the title says Alternative Art Journals - so no necessarily using books, but other surfaces such as making a card set (like tarots/playing cards), nested boxes, accordion books, a scroll and many others. Some have how-to's on creating some of those books. It is a good inspiration.
