9780060899196: Postsecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives

A compelling book of the confessions and secrets from the PostSecret website - the project that captured a nation's imagination

The instructions were simple, but the results were extraordinary.

'You are invited to anonymously contribute a secret to a group art project. Your secret can be a regret, fear, betrayal, desire, confession or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before. Be brief. Be legible. Be creative.'

It all began with an idea Frank Warren had for a community art project. He handed out postcards, asking people to write down a secret and post it to him, anonymously. The response was overwhelming. In under a year, Frank had over 10,000 cards which he posted on the website.

The confessions were thought-provoking, funny and weird, touching on every aspect of human experience and revealing much about the state of modern life, and catapulting PostSecret to the status of global phenomenon.

Superbly illustrated throughout, this book is a great conversation piece, fascinating to flick through, and almost unputdownable once you have.

Review:

moving, intriguing and rather beautiful... many of [the postcards] burst with desire, pain or loneliness but some are quirkily amusing: all human experience in brief ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Very artistic ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 264 x 201 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. New York Times BestsellerThe project that captured a nation s imagination.The instructions were simple, but the results were extraordinary.You are invited to anonymously contribute a secret to a group art project. Your secret can be a regret, fear, betrayal, desire, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything -- as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before. Be brief. Be legible. Be creative.It all began with an idea Frank Warren had for a community art project. He began handing out postcards to strangers and leaving them in public places -- asking people to write down a secret they had never told anyone and mail it to him, anonymously.The response was overwhelming. The secrets were both provocative and profound, and the cards themselves were works of art -- carefully and creatively constructed by hand. Addictively compelling, the cards reveal our deepest fears, desires, regrets, and obsessions. Frank calls them graphic haiku, beautiful, elegant, and small in structure but powerfully emotional.As Frank began posting the cards on his website, PostSecret took on a life of its own, becoming much more than a simple art project. It has grown into a global phenomenon, exposing our individual aspirations, fantasies, and frailties -- our common humanity.Every day dozens of postcards still make their way to Frank, with postmarks from around the world, touching on every aspect of human experience. This extraordinary collection brings together the most powerful, personal, and beautifully intimate secrets Frank Warren has received -- and brilliantly illuminates that human emotions can be unique and universal at the same time.
