A Life In Hand: Creating the Illuminated Journal by Hannah Hinchman
Borrowing the best examples from her own journals, and the works of others, Hinchman leads the reader from simple jottings and scratched likenesses to fully illuminated gems of philosophy, and shows how a lasting record of experience and a road map for self-discovery can be created. 116 illustrations, 16 in color.
My grandmother, who is an artist, carries a journal everywhere she goes; and everywhere she goes she makes a written and visual record of her impressions, sometimes with pen sketches, but more often with watercolors. I love being able to thumb through her journals and see the world through her eyes. A Life in Hand (a blank journal is included) teaches this kind of field journaling which combines writing and drawing as a unique and creative approach to experiencing life. Hannah Hinchman gives us not just an instructional, but an impressionistic guide that wanders through the soul of journaling, stopping here and there to point out important landmarks. She leads us to discovering our own voice, and to making the journal an extension of ourselves-a tool for impression and expression that becomes second nature. — From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Ilene Rosoff
