My mom just recently gave me this journal. As I don´t keep a diary and the pages are a bit thin for drawing I thought I could use it for 1001 journals, a project which evolved out of 1000 journals. 1000 journals had been the attempt by Someguy, a San Francisco based artist, to follow 1000 journals throughout their travels, to see where they go, and what people do with them. From all the 1000 books he sent off summer 2000 1 came back in 2003. What happened to the other 999? A documentary (telling the story about these 999 journals) has been just released this month at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco. Basically you sign up to add to a journal or you start one yourself and let it out into the wild. I sent this one (registered as Journal 2898) off to the States and after the next participant has added some art to it, the book will be left in some public place (airport, subway, bus, pedestrian zone, McDonald´s, etc.). This way it will hopefully travel a lot and maybe one day it will be returned to me.
I do hope that I will one day get this journal back.
