Review:

Quinn McDonald of Quinn Creative says:
"Right up front, I have to say I am a sucker for books that encourage people to bring out their inner artist, give 'em a  handful of art supplies and then let them feel successful with simple instructions that work well. And this is a book that does that. I love the breath of "simple" here."

Michelle Reuss of Lost Coast Post says: "...let me just say that I love this book! I also need to say that even in the glut of art technique books on the market, I think there are few geared towards advanced art journalers. Personally, I'm not interested in shallow eye candy books or books that trudge through oft-trudged material (i.e. how to use an old credit card to create backgrounds.) I am looking for books that challenge me, that offer a different approach."

UK artist and blogger Sue Bulmer says:
"Alternative Art Journals provides you with ideas of 'how' to collect elements which inspire new ideas for your work. This section I really enjoyed as it encourages the reader to experiment, collect ephemera, paste and stick, recording thoughts, feelings, colour and mood. From Tibetan book journals, to scrolls and accordion books, posts cards, playing cards and box journals -ideas and projects are plentiful and there is certainly something to suit all tastes."

Seth Apter of The Altered Page says:
"The main focus of this book is on creating these innovative journal structures but more is included as well. Sidebars throughout the book introduce tips, ideas, historical information, prompts, and other bits and pieces of info to help you think outside the box when it comes to journal making. The gallery includes some beautiful examples of journals, all of which were created by the author."
