Every artist and designer, student or professional, needs a journal space to play in new ways, to think with a pencil in hand, by inventing, imagining, and thinking creatively. Unlike a blank journal, Take a line for a walk is a Creativity Journal—comprised of varied prompts, cuing people to respond to whatever creative action the prompt calls for—sketch/design/conceive/write. The author collaborated with esteemed designers, artists, architects, and experts in a variety of disciplines to deliberately vary prompts, which address numerous ways of thinking and creating. Designed by internationally acclaimed, Modern Dog Design Co., this imaginative, fascinating and playful journal entices all types of students, visual arts - and non-art majors alike, to supplement in-class projects or to stimulate thinking on a summer break or after graduation, to keep creativity flowing in this unique space.

As well as being a  gifted graphic design I have always found the books by Robin Landa to be well researched, concise and incredibly  helpful to the designer starting out or even for the gifted designer who isn't comfortable promoting themselves.  This is a playful look at daily creativity and a great addition for any designer's library.  _Jennifer Sterling

This journal is totally unique and cool! Each page has plenty of room to sketch or write along with a prompt (something written by a famous designer or artist or other expert) to make you think creatively. It's also a great size to carry with you for those moments when you wish you could be doing something fun.
