The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Vol. 3

Published 11-5-13 by It Books
I received a review copy from the publisher. 

Description: From Golden Globe Award–nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his online creative coalition hitRECord, and in collaboration with the artist Wirrow, comes Volume 3 in the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories series.

To create The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known within the hitRECord.org community as RegularJOE, directs thousands of collaborators to tell tiny stories through words and art. With the help of the entire creative collective, he culls, edits, and curates the massive numbers of contributions into a finely tuned collection.

The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 3 once again brings together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size.


My Review: Wow, what a powerful little book! With few words it made a big emotional impact. It's amazing how much someone can say in such a small space. The artwork and stories included were poetic, beautiful, and sometimes whimsical. I found myself bookmarking several of them and wishing I could blow them up as posters for my wall.


 Now I have Volumes 1 and 2 on my wishlist and can't wait to read them! In the meantime I'll be exploring the hitRECord.org website. 

If you're a fan of projects like Six Word Memoirs, PostSecret, and StoryPeople, I encourage you to give this book a try. This is a quick read, but it's one that will stick with you long after you've finished the book. I know it's a book I'll return to again and again.
