Listography is a series of journals created by Lisa Nola and published by Chronicle Books. It is also a personal web application which allows users to create and share lists. Through list-making, users can shape an autobiography and create references for themselves and others. Some common types of lists are: autobiographical, favorites, motivational, wishlists, to do lists, catalogues, and photo lists. Users are sometimes called listographers and their collection of lists are referred to as listographies. Listography is a trademarked name.

Listography.com & The Listography Book were featured in Boing Boing Television's premiere as a place to capture one's autobiography in lists.

The Web Application[edit]

Listography.com was founded by Lisa Nola & Adam Marks and launched publicly in 2007. The site is a personal and social tool for creating and sharing lists. Each user has a home page called their listography. Users can create a list of their favorite other listography users, and view updates on these users' listographies. Users can also leave comments on lists and send lists via email. Another feature of the site is a list topic generator. Listography is self-funded and free of advertising.

The Books[edit]

Nearing a million copies sold, the first Listography book was published by Chronicle Books in October, 2007. Other editions include: Travel Listography, Future Listography, Parenthood Listography, Love Listography, Kid's Listography, Music Listography, Friends Listography, Film Listography, Literary Listography, and Food Listography. Spirit Listography slated for 2016. The books/journals prompt readers to record their autobiography through a series of list topics created by Lisa Nola, complemented by illustrations from various guest artists. Listography has been translated into three languages.
