Participatory Books


The participatory book series began in January 2007 with a blog that asked questions: Do you remember your first love? Has the mental health of other people had an influence in your life? Can you tell me the story of a breakup? What was your first job? Have you ever had a smell trigger a memory?

The books debuted at the MoCCA ArtFest in June 2007, the Smell Book made Craig Yoe's "Top Ten Books Scored at Mocca!" list, and they received a 5-Star rating from Fanatic Press' Allen Freeman on his Small Press Review Blog.

They have a home on Here you can contribute your stories for future books and purchase the current set.
