The ultimate in crowd-sourced, user-generated, globalized wiki-culture, San Francisco-based designer Brian Singer’s 1000 Journals Project is as analog as can be.
In the decade since Singer distributed the project’s first notebooks — featuring original covers by popular young artists and an open invitation to fill some of their pages and pass them on — the journals have crisscrossed the globe. Along the way, they’ve accumulated powerful, eclectic stories and art, and spawned exhibitions, a book, a documentary film, and a second round of international paper-tag.
Visit the 1000 Journals Project online, peruse galleries of cover art and individual notebooks, view a selection of journals in person at LA’s Skirball Center through February, buy the 1000 Journals book and DVD, and register for the next phase, 1001 Journals.
