I’m not sure Frank Warren understood what he was unleashing in January, 2005, when he initiated his PostSecret project .
What started as something of a social experiment, encouraging people to send him their innermost secrets on a postcard, turned into something way beyond that.
It wasn’t long before Frank, a mild-mannered man from suburban Washington, DC started receiving thousands of postcards, from all over the world .
In 2005 he published the first book. A collection of those postcards, called simply PostSecret. That’s when I first met him.
By 2007, Warren was on his fourth best-selling book, and that’s when we did the interview you’re about to hear. His latest book was called A Lifetime of Secrets .
So here now, from 2007, Frank Warren.
Franmk Warren’s POstSecret.com still collects and curates postcards.
