Book Description

The Art of the Travel Journal shows intrepid adventurers how to creatively document life on the road in take-along travel journals, using fun, easy techniques for drawing, lettering, journaling, adding colour, and much more. No experience is necessary to create these one-of-a-kind keepsakes. Author Abbey Sy (Instagram: @abbeysy) covers all facets of travel journalling, including essential art supplies and how to pack them, how to set intentions, ideas for staying motivated, methods for collecting and keeping travel ephemera, and how to use colour effectively. Learn how to build cohesive pages that tell a story around popular themes such as museums and galleries, food, architecture, and nature.

The book also offers suggestions for developing a creative habit, cultivating a unique style, and ways to photograph and archive journals so they’ll last a lifetime. Armchair travellers won’t be left out the techniques, ideas, and inspiration can be used for day trips, staycations, or just discovering a new local café or museum. With The Art of the Travel Journal, every adventure becomes an opportunity to dive into creativity.
