I love this book. It's utterly compelling, and at times heartwarming, funny and poignant. The postcards featured are all anonymous contributions to a group art project, where people write a secret they have never told anyone on a home made postcard. A great coffee table book, which will make the perfect present for the quirky and creative ones in your life. Personally I'd treat yourself to it, it really is beautiful.
'You are invited to anonymously contribute a secret to a group art project. Your secret can be a regret, fear, betrayal, desire, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before. Be brief. Be legible. Be creative.'
So began Frank Warren's PostSecret project when he handed out postcards to strangers, and asked for them to mail it back. In under a year, more than 10,000 did so, and their secrets were sometimes moving or funny or just plain weird: 'I stole valium from my epileptic dog', 'I waste office supplies because I hate my boss', and 'I've always wanted to rob a bank'. All of these thought-provoking confessions are superbly illustrated throughout, and reveal much about the modern state of life.
This book is a great conversation piece, fascinating to flick through, and almost unputdownable once you have.
