Post-it Note Diaries: Book Release & Reading
Post-it Note Diaries: Book Release & Reading
Post-it Note Diaries: 20 Stories of Youthful Abandon, Embarrassing Mishaps, and Everyday Adventure is a Book edited and illustrated by Arthur Jones. It features true stories by a wide variety of performers, writers, musicians and artists. Each contribution is illustrated on a series of Post-it Notes that are laid out in sequential panels like a comic.

Before the book was a book it was a reading series -- The Post-it Note Reading Series, co-hosted by Jones and his friend, radio personality Starlee Kine. The event is half reading, half slideshow, where writers present stories illustrated by Jones. It works a little like a movie being shown at 1 frame a minute or a hand drawn lecture.
