stories without structure

A ShufflebookA ShufflebookA Shufflebook

When I was a little girl, I hated structure. In fact, in many ways I still do. Whenever I was given books to read, I would create my own stories anyway. I think playing around or experimenting with words and characters at an early age made me love writing later in life.

So I absolutely adore the idea behind the Shufflebooks created by Richard Hefter and Martin Stephen Moskof. The book is a series of 52 illustrated cards that can be grouped in an endless numbers of ways, allowing children to create their own stories.

How cool would this be as an interactive game?

  1. These are awesome!!! Are they for sale anywhere? I would love to frame them!

  2. These are INDEED glorious! Not a fan of structure myself, either. Never have been.

    I've just never been able to grasp the fun, or necessity of doing things the same way twice.

    I mean, really. Let's mix things up a bit if we can.
