    I remember the day I found this book. It was in a slipcased edition, with the book and a blank book, both paperback, at a Waldenbooks in Little Rock that no longer exists. It was a sunny afternoon and the light was coming in the front of the store. I bought it with a birthday gift certificate from my father. I have great affection for this book. I haven't quite loved it to pieces, as I did with my first copy of Harriet the Spy, but it was a revelatory book the first time through and has been a f [...]

    Well, I'm not even going to pretend to be objective about this one. This book has been out of print for years, and I've searched high and low to find a copy. Finally got one from a neighboring library system, and it is dog eared, and musty, and marked up, and the mustiness made it hard for me to read, but I loved every single page. It is rare that I read a book, get to the last page, and want to turn around and start reading it again. I have resisted that impulse so as to be kind to my lungs, bu [...]

    I picked this up at a used bookstore over the weekend and am well pleased that I did. It's a delightful read about both using words and sketches in one's journal, as tools to provide insight and aid observation. I jotted down a number of quotes from it and can see myself revisiting its exercises when I need journaling inspiration. If you read this book, make sure you do so in a format that allows you to see all the author's drawings integrated with the text throughout.

    A Hinchman classic. I can't believe I'd never seen it, just her other books on the illuminated journal (which I've been keeping since high school). She is the wizard of artistic text and simplicity in framing.

    This is one of the most old-fashioned things I've ever read, which makes it even odder that I read it on my phone. Having followed the recommendation from Cathy Johnson (author of Artist's Journal Workshop: Creating Your Life in Words and Pictures), I had guessed that most of this book would be about art. I was wrong. There are a lot of Hannah Hinchman's sketches in it, and there's a rather awkward discourse on the best art materials (I say awkward because it doesn't fit with the rest of the wri [...]

    Lots of wonderful ideas for integrating a visual journal, diary, and everyday "practical" notes.

    A unique blend of reflection and instruction, this book on making an artistic journal is inspiring. Hannah Hinchman is a naturalist, which connected me to the book, as well as an artist not only of pictures but of words. She encourages inputting anything you want into your journal and watching for the connections that get made that will tell a story of your life. Most of the book instructs in different drawing techniques and tools, encouraging the reader to do practice exercises. The difference [...]

    If I had read this after the first book that gave me my first "aha" moment about the value of documenting and illustrating one's life--The Principles of Uncertainty--then it would've made a much better impression on me, no doubt. I have, however, read many books about journaling, art, and the combination, and this one just felt kind of old-fashioned and, at some points, pedantic to me. I did love seeing her illustrations, but the formatting of the book was poorly done: it crammed her illustratio [...]

    Although out of print, this was definitely worth finding and reading. In addition to a lot of suggestions for ways to fill a journal with both images and text that are meaningful to the person creating the journal, the best bit of wisdom I came away with is that a visual journal really can be a way to capture one's life in one place. Not just the beautiful images and sunset moments but also the debris of everyday life. I love Hannah Hinchman's insistence that our to do lists should co exist next [...]

    I read this book because Danny Gregory recommended it in his book Creative License. Hannah Hinchman includes some nice pen and ink sketches, as well as some watercolors. There's lots of talk about writing well, about really observing nature and the people and places in your life. But overall I found the writing to be less compelling than Gregory's, and the tone to be much more personal. I wonder if people reading this book wouldn't feel intimidated by all the detail and the quality of the drawin [...]

    This book helped me to chronicle my creative life through drawing, not just in photographs and words. This is a quote from the book: "When you open the journal, bring whatever self you are at that moment to the page as purely as possible. Listen, wait, keep reaching for clarity. Excise the meaningless and habitual. Keep watching."

    Not a bad guide, though if you've read a lot about journaling, it does seem repetitive in some areas. She really does make the idea of sketching through your journals seem approachable, though, and I've successfully tried some of the techniques.

    This is a beautiful, timeless book on visual journaling. I'm sad that it's out of print and is hard to find used.Update: I bought the Kindle edition so I could return my borrowed copy to my friend. And I found a $7 used copy.

    I read this book twice, back to back. I loved it that much. I've read many books on illustrated journaling, and this one is by far my favorite.

    Such a stress free invitation to journalling. Loved it!

    This book is very good for beginning journalers as a guide, and for experienced ones as a motivator and source of new ideas. Pretty pictures, too.

    This book is a good inspiration for me. It gave many good tips about starting a nature journal.
