The Imaginary World Of....
The Imaginary World Of....by Keri Smith
About The Book:
What kind of world would you like to inhabit? To imagine something different, better, or more interesting is to push the existing world into a state of change. Some of the greatest revolutionary acts of our time came to be because someone had the courage to imagine something new. In The Imaginary World of…, Keri Smith asks readers to imagine something new: a unique world of their own making. Readers start by creating a list of everything to which they’re drawn: things they love and collect, colors, shapes, ideas, people, and creatures that fascinate them. The items in the list will become the building blocks for their imaginary worlds, used to create texture and establish a foundation for the new place they’ll begin to inhabit. Readers will then be prompted to think about landscape, place names, maps, currency, residents, logos, foods, histories, and more for their world. An indispensable guide for artists, dreamers, activists, and kids of all ages, The Imaginary World of… will encourage readers to become revolutionaries of everyday life, chronicling the possibilities in the brave new worlds they envision.
I love Keri Smith books, and have several. This one is a bit different, and I love it. It is almost like a game you create on paper and play on paper instead of something online. You are the builder, the creator, the "God". It really is a very cool book!
