The Museum of Broken Relationships by Olinka Vistica

Into the Wild

Read The Museum of Broken Relationships Online Free - "Leave[s] your heart feeling full and connected."-- Frank Warren, PostSecret

In the spirit of Humans of New York and PostSecret, MUSEUM OF BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS is a gorgeous gift book celebrating the objects that outlast love: a poignant, funny, sometimes bizarre and always delightful window into modern love and loss.
A postcard from a childhood sweetheart. A wedding dress sealed in a jar. A roll of undeveloped film. An axe used to chop an ex-lover's furniture in a fit of rage. A wind-up toy, a bar of bath soap, a tin of Love Potion with the simple caption "Doesn't work." These objects, and many more, make up the whimsical, imaginative, poignant population of the Museum of Broken Relationships. Started by two former lovers who wanted a way to commemorate their relationship even after it ended, who couldn't bear to simply throw away the objects that had once meant so much, the Museum of Broken Relationships has captured hearts and imaginations around the globe since its founding in 2010. Anonymous submissions have poured in by the thousands: objects with brief, compelling captions confessing to the story behind their meaning. The museum's Croatian exhibit quickly became a main draw for tourists from around the globe, and has garnered enthusiastic, glowing media attention from sources as disparate as the New York Times and the Chinese national news. Now, as the physical museum arrives for a permanent spot in Los Angeles, the authors have collected the best, funniest, most heartwarming and heartrending stories from their huge selection of submissions. Much like the bestselling Postsecret series, this beautiful oversized, four-color book will offer an irresistible glimpse inside other people's secret worlds, creating moments of deep human connection. It is a must read for anyone who has ever loved and lost.

The Museum Of Broken Relationships @brokenships was heart breaking but beautiful. I first heard about this museum when I watched an episode of WAGS LA and became interested with the concept.

This book would make a fantastic gift this Christmas. It is filled with so much heart and left me so happy and changed. I loved looking at all the items in the book and reading the little stories next to the photos. It was such an endearing, moving, heartbreaking, inspiring and, at times, strange...

This is a strange book with photos of objects that represent former relationships. The objects are varied, from rubber gloves and a copy of the New Yorker to belly button lint and a butcher knife. There is information about each image. There are dates and a locations, but no names. This book is n...

Loved this collection and the stories behind the items left after a break up. Some were sad, some angry, some funny, but all were interesting. <3

When a relationship ends, the detritus that remains is painful. It’s thrown away. Burned. Donated. Shredded. Except for that one object—the wedding dress in the mason jar, the GPS, the little rubber piggy—that makes its way into boxes during every move. Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic started...

I don't remember where I heard about this book but I knew that I really wanted to read it. I know I still have memento's of old relationships. They are in a box, packed away and every once in awhile I will come across them. After reading this book, I thought about sending them to this museum. With...

My first 10/5 stars for 2018. I love simple books that are powerful in message. This is the poster child for it. A book chronicling objects that symbolize loss for people; some objects that once were a symbol of happiness. This book, in its simplicity, made me think of a note my husband gave me 12...
