No matter how hard we try, everyday life always becomes predictable. From the toothpaste we use and the clothing we wear, to the way we talk and what we do in our free time, we follow the same habits, most likely because someone told us to, or we never really gave it much thought to begin with. But what if we could shape our lives into our own vision, informed with our own desires and passions? What if we had the power to create our own realities whenever we wished - just by changing the way we perform simple tasks? Everything is Connected is not just a book of postcards. It's a series of experiments designed to shake us out of our ruts. Through the ingenious use of the common postcard, Keri Smith encourages us to embark on a quest to reanimate everyday life.

In Mess, Keri Smith, creator of Wreck This Journal, asks readers to explore what it feels like to throw themselves off balance -- on purpose. Smith dares readers to drop some kind of coloured liquid (ink, tea, coffee) onto a page from a good height (at least five feet); draw in the dark (or with eyes closed); creatively misspell words; paint a picture in a water-based medium (pen, marker, watercolour, etc) and leave it out during a rain or snowstorm; and bury this book, then dig it up. This book is unlike any other you've encountered. Mess encourages readers to use accidents and mistakes to venture into territory where they would not normally go and thus to open themselves up to the possibility of creating something new and unexpected.

It's time to get off the beaten path. Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, Atlas Obscura celebrates over 700 of the strangest and most curious places in the world. Talk about a bucket list: here are natural wonders—the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand, or a baobob tree in South Africa that's so large it has a pub inside where 15 people can drink comfortably. Architectural marvels, including the M.C. Escher-like stepwells in India. Mind-boggling events, like the Baby Jumping Festival in Spain, where men dressed as devils literally vault over rows of squirming infants. Not to mention the Great Stalacpipe Organ in Virginia, Turkmenistan's 40-year hole of fire called the Gates of Hell, a graveyard for decommissioned ships on the coast of Bangladesh, eccentric bone museums in Italy, or a weather-forecasting invention that was powered by leeches, still on display in Devon, England. Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton, ATLAS OBSCURA revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden and the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvelous the world really is. And with its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, it is a book to enter anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer. Anyone can be a tourist. ATLAS OBSCURA is for the explorer.

The contributors—art educators from the United States and Canada— suggest in both theoretical and practical terms ways to teach art that explore issues such as personal identity, difference, visual culture and the popular media, the environment, aging, and narrative, as well as examining issues of race, gender, and ethnicity. The readings provide an issues-based approach to art education and address schooling as socialization, issues as content and context, the traditions of art education, educational theories, visual art and visual culture. For future and current art educators and others interested in teaching art to children.

In these updated editions, Wreck This Journal asks readers to muster up their best mistake and mess-making abilities and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts--poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more--in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process. .
