This book asks you to do the opposite of what you have been taught. Think of it as your own personal rumpus room. A place to let loose, to trash, to spew, to do the things you are not allowed to do in the "real world." It's time to make a mess.
The only three rules you'll find in this book:
1. Do not try to make something beautiful.
2. Do not think too much. (There is no "wrong.")
3. Continue under all circumstances.
Our Take: We see a lot of books here at the Legion. What really grabbed me about MESS is that its more like a performance art book! The pages encourage you to tear and write and mess them up! They want you to destroy the rule book and feel free to be creative. I think the message here is really to re-invent the wonder and creative magic behind books that they have lost in recent years. I, for one, absolutely loved it! I went to work screwing the book all up and I'm quite proud of my work! I recommend you pick this one up immediately! It'd make a great gift.
