PostSecret started as a community art project: 3,000 self-addressed blank postcards distributed to strangers, asking for their secrets. A decade and more than a million secrets later, creator Frank Warren is has been called “the most trusted stranger in America.” His latest book documents the poignant, funny and tragic confessions, and the large online community that has developed around PostSecret. We speak with him about PostSecret and what’s next as he steps down from the project.
