View a Couple of Roz's Past Fake Journals Roz's 2009 fake journal takes place in an alternate Twin Cites, where disease has killed the human and bird populations. (It ends up being an upbeat tale of friendship.) Watch a video flip through of Roz's 2009 fake journal here.

Fake, Fake, Fake—Layers of Fake: A Flip Through of Roz's 2010 Fake Journal
Above is a short video flip through of my 2010 fake journal. Sadly the quality of the videos my tiny camera makes isn't such that you can read the post-it note on the cover or the handwritten note inside the cover—but those are all part of the fake journal. They were written by ANOTHER fake character, not the one keeping the journal. They'll appear in scanned form at the end of my individual posts of the pages.
For now you can see the wonderful distorted shape the APICA notebook took on during the month of April. And you can see all the pages from April 1 through April 30 in a quick flip through that will give you an overview of the project.

This year, 2018, we will be having a contest. This will happen sometime after April ends. It will be a quiz, the questions and scope are yet to be determined. Please follow the blog for more details when known. (There is a fun, small, but extremely useful prize.)
