From the Inside Flap
It takes a long time to understand nothing. -- Edward Dahlberg
When asked what five books he would take with him to a desert island, George Bernard Shaw replied that he would take five blank books. The Nothing Book is a blank book. The possibilities are endless. Write your own novel, compile a personal cookbook, draw pictures, make lists, keep records, collect autographs, write poetry, plan vacations, start a diary or scrapbook, design clothes, invent needlework or knitting patterns, doodle, compose songs, jot down important dates, keep a guest book, press flowers, gather favorite quotes, accumulate (or invent) funny stories, use your imagination and do your own thing The Nothing Book is your book, it is meant to be whatever you want it to be. As Byron once wrote:
'Tis pleasant, sure, to see one's name in print; A book's a book, although there's nothing in't.

in 1973. Great for a journal. Found it here last spring, but wasn't
ready to order. I guess I should have, because it wasn't listed at
this price!! Bummer!
