Editorial Reviews

Review

Full of whimsy, wit, and cute doodles, 1 Page at a Time is the perfect inspirational tool, journal, and way to get to know yourself better. - Powell's Staff Pick 

The hefty creative journal is a product of Kurtz' bold perspective on human emotion in our contemporary world. 1 Page at a Time ensures that you'll find encouragement, entertainment and inspiration in its pages. - HOW Magazine

Perfectly silly, thought-provoking, and uplifting. - BuzzFeed

A funny and conversational take on the process of working that is a must for any creative. Urban Outfitters Blog

From the Author

A tough year became the inspiration for 1 Page at a Time. It's an introspective journal with a sense of humor, at times sarcastic, optimistic and anxious, with small notes and reminders tucked in. But it's not me, it's you - pushing you to really think about who you are right now and what you want to be. It's a slow climb in a fast internet world, and proof that you're going to (literally) make it through the year, even if that feels impossible now.

The best part about this book is that though it's a solo journey, the hashtag in the book connects you to thousands of other people all around the world (it's been published in several languages now). You might find a penpal, or you might just realize that we're all facing our individual challenges together.

For the first half of Adam's life, I was the source of much unsolicited advice. But since then, he has worked hard to produce his art and his ideas to share with everyone. His hard work, determination and friendliness have created an environment of understanding, creativity, empathy and motivation. It may be only paper, but once completed, it will become a powerful tool for you to see where you have been and where you want to grow.

His book is a credit to him and his honesty and compassion for others.

But, if he makes fun of me, cut me some slack....

I've been a big fan of Adam's stuff for quite some time and I was so excited to hear that he was finally coming out with a book. I've been using his calendar/planner since the beginning of the year and I still find myself having fun with it every day. I knew a book would be no different.

First off, I quite adore his style. His writing is witty. His sketches are fun and whimsical. He always keeps me guessing about what's on the next page. I'm always excited to get to the next day. It's almost a challenge to keep myself from peeking ahead sometimes.

This type of book--the journal prompt, sketchy, inspiration-filled, page-a-day books--is honestly a-dime-a-dozen, but Adam's book is different. Don't get me wrong. He still has tons of creativity, inspiration, motivation, and wit on each page, of course. But there is one huge difference: he helps you learn more about yourself. While some pages are just goofy and fun to fill in, may prompts will make you stop and think.

In conclusion, this book is awesome. If you fill it out, you will be awesome, too.

(Also I think it's the absolute cutest thing ever that his mom wrote a review and let everyone know her son is the bomb. Cutest. Thing. Ever.)

Adam's snarky realness mixed with his brilliant design and wit make this little book your new sassy and wise best friend. There are pages for when you're just bored, pages for when you're laughing, pages for when you're crying, and pages for when you're feeling introspective. It's really the perfect gift and you should start by buying one for yourself.

Most people seem to either preach about the way technology has brought us closer together or damn it for destroying everything from human interaction to paper books but Adam J. Kurtz is one of the rare few who effectively uses our relationship with technology to reignite our connection to the physical and one another. In his book you will find yourself posting to instagram and laughing about jokes that reference social media while simultaneously making paper lists, doodling ridiculous things, writing miniature journal entries, and tearing out pages for yourself, strangers, and friends.

So, embrace that nostalgia for your elementary school composition notebook and get ready to enjoy your "companion" as it forces the best bad jokes upon you, makes you remember to call your mom, and sometimes just gives you a blank page for some literal and figurative space.

I'm very disappointed by this book.. I wanted to like it so much but what I've seen/done it's not very inspiring to me.
Some examples are "text that person you met last night" or "tape a pic of yourself here" or popup ad "humor" or a page full of blank clocks asking what time is it. It seemed to have a consistent "current" computer and phone theme.. I didn't like that it brought that aspect into it because I wanted it to get away from the computer. I honestly just feel like I'm writing around the words that are already there and not working with them at all.. sometimes that's better than a blank page, I guess. I'm sure it's inspiring to some people, but I'm going to have to try a different one.

I started writing in this book during the worst week of my life and guess what my week became immensely better. I guess this book is magic.

This book is so fun and it even makes fun of itself. It makes creativity less intimidating, instead of staring at a blank page this gives you directions to make stuff that doesn't make such a big deal about itself:
"1. Draw a beautiful frame.
2. Put nothing in it.
3. good Job."
It's great! The frame is enough.

It also has a bunch of inspiring witty thoughts too. I love it. It was a gift for someone but I love it and I'm selfish. I'll have to get another.

It's not every day that the whimsy of youth is reignited. Adam J Kurtz seems to be on a mission to do this for all of us.

I'm a huge fan. I bought one for me and after receiving the first, I bought another copy as a gift for a friend.
