Register your book and see where it goes.
The 1000 Journals Project is an “ongoing, collaborative experiment attempting to follow 1000 journals throughout their travels around the world.” They start as blank journals, and anyone may add to them. The goal is interaction and shared creativity.
Phototag is a “community photography project where we retrofit cheap disposable cameras with shiny new packaging, artwork, instructions and return postage. Each camera is then passed along to friends and strangers with the request that they take one picture and pass it along to someone else. (Phototaggers can also report on their experiences at our website.) Once all the film is used up, the last Phototagger can simply drop the camera in the mailbox.”
