Spilling Open by Sabrina Ward Harrison

By | 10 April 08

Spilling Open by Sabrina Ward Harrison was startling and original when it first appeared in bookstores. Store owners weren’t sure where to shelve it… art? … crafts? … self-help?

Book CoverSabrina Ward Harrison made it okay to mix torn-paper collage, cut-out images, paint, pencil, sketches and everything but the kitchen sink. (Only because the sink probably wouldn’t fit between the journal covers.)

I pick up this book regularly for inspiration, and — several years later — I still find ideas that I didn’t notice before.

Anyone who keeps in illustrated diary or artists’ journal should own at least one book by Sabrina Ward Harrison.

This book, her first, is as good a place to start as any.
