At the beginning of 2005, Frank Warren launched a new blog called PostSecret as an experiment in community art, inviting strangers to mail him anonymous postcards that made art out of their innermost secrets and then posting a selection of the cards every week on his blog. Within a year, his blog was one of the five most popular in the world, and his first book, PostSecret, was one of the surprise bestsellers of 2005. My Secret is his second book, a collection of cards from teens and college students–none of which has been shown on the website–that carries the same emotional power and creativity that have made Warren’s project a phenomenon.
To mark the launch of My Secret, Warren is sharing with us seven postcards from the book that haven’t been seen on the website. We’ll post one card a day beginning on October 17 and ending on October 23, the day before My Secret is released. Come back every day and see what’s new.
