Listography is a series of journals created by Lisa Nola and published by Chronicle Books. It is also a 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. and the Listography books were featured in Boing Boing Television's premiere as a place to capture one's autobiography in lists.[1]

The term Listography, coined by Lisa Nola, is defined as an autobiography made up entirely of listed details from your life.[2] Some common types of lists are: autobiographical, favorites, motivational, wishlists, to do lists, catalogues, and photo lists.

With over a million copies sold, the first Listography book was published in October 2007. A Listography tabletop game was released in 2016.[3] The Listography series has been translated into six languages and the term "listography" is trademarked.[4]
