Frank Warren from PostSecret.com...
was in Austin! Quirkee was there and I brought my camera. I took many photos of his presentation and book signing. Some are posted on the Image Gallery at Quirkee.com. You have to be a registered user to view the special stuff - so get to registering!
After the book signing we met up at Manuel's on 4th and Congress for some late grub and a couple of drinks with Frank. He really has a great project with PostSecret and you can tell that it is something very important to him. He is now the owner of over 100,000 secrets that he keeps in a safe place. The project is not only for the art value, it is also for the value of releasing your secret to someone in secret so that you don't have to carry it around with you for the rest of your life.
Some of the postcard secrets he receives are funny ones, some are not. You can find links to purchase the books of secrets at Quirkee if you want to see some of what he knows. You can view the new secrets every Sunday on his blog PostSecret.
If you have a secret you want to tell, here's the address:
Thanks for coming to Austin, Frank. We hope you had a good time and will stop back by someday.
