Description

Journal 3 brims with every page ever seen on the show plus all-new pages with monsters and secrets, notes from Dipper and Mabel, and the Author's full story. Gravity Falls fans will simply love this 288-page full-color jacketed hardcover version of Journal 3! Plus, the book jacket doubles as an exclusive poster!

Synopsis

Hey, guys!

I'm Alex Hirsch, the creator of Gravity Falls, and the voices of Grunkle Stan, Soos, Bill Cipher, Old Man McGucket, and possibly your nightmares.

If you're a fan of the show, or just someone who likes to be confused, delighted, and horrified (in that order), then you're in luck! In your hands you hold the Author's coveted journal, a full-color 288-page treasure trove of never-before-revealed secrets, monsters, and mysteries in the sleepy town of Gravity Falls. You'll learn Ford's tragic backstory, Blendin's whereabouts, what Dimension 52 is, and how to lure a "Plaidypus."

This is a book many dark forces want to get their hands on, so beware anyone who tries to take it from you (especially if they have glowing yellow eyes)!

Most important, have fun. After all, there's no such place as Gravity Falls.

Or is there?

Your pal, Alex Hirsch

Several letters can be seen printed in purple, and when combined, it spells out the sentence, STAY WEIRD.

Special edition

Due to the success of Journal 3, Disney publishing released a special limited edition of the book with several special features. Originally only 1,000 copies were to be printed and released on February 14, 2017.[3] However, due to the overwhelming pre-order demands, Disney made further arrangements for more books to be printed. The new release date was June 13, 2017 to make time to make more books.[4] The supply officially ran out on June 17th, 2017, when the last 100 copies were sold as a special bundle on TheMysteryShack.com and sold out the same day they were made public to be ordered. The special edition is also bigger and thicker than the original book, with size dimensions of 8.5 x 2.9 x 10.5 inches (21.6 x 7.4 x 26.7 cm) as opposed to 7.8 x 1 x 9.9 inches (19.8 x 2.5 x 21.5 cm).

Alex's letter

Hello, reader!

If you're seeing this message, that means you're one of the lucky few who managed to get your hands on a copy of Journal 3 Special Edition. Only 10,000 of these rare books currently exist on Earth-and I personally own 48 of them. (I made them into a little fort. Don't judge me!)

This book is the most show-accurate version of Journal 3 that exists-a hardbound treasure trove of secrets, monsters, and mysteries from the sleepy town of Gravity Falls. It comes with a monocle so you can look closer than ever at the conspiracies inside, and each copy is signed by me. (You can still smell the marker fumes!) Best of all, legend has it that if you expose this book to a black light. brand-new secrets will be revealed!

Are the legends true? Put on your Dipper hat, because it's time to find out! The answers are somewhere in the woods... waiting...

Your pal,

AH

Infomercial

Main article: Gravity Falls Journal 3 Infomercial

A special infomercial promoting the Journal was released online on March 28, 2017. The commercial brought back voice actors Kristen Schaal (Mabel Pines) and Jason Ritter (Dipper Pines) who try to sell their Journal 3 accessories. There is also a toll-free number included to "buy" the merchandise: 888-274-4447. If viewers actually called the number, they were greeted by a message from Stanley Pines.

Trivia

  • Before the official title of the book was revealed, it was referred to as Dipper's Journal during the "Gravity Falls revealed" panel at New York Comic Con in 2015.
  • Promotional cards for the book's release were distributed during the "Gravity Falls revealed" New York Comic Con in 2015. Additionally, at Comic Con, previews of the Gnomes and Leprecorn page were shown.
    • There is a cryptogram on each of the cards (semicolon shown to separate cards), "D VKRRWLQJ VWDU PDB IDOO; FUDFNV DUH KLGGHQ LQ WKH ZDOO; RQH HBH ZDWFKHV DOO." Once decoded using the Caesar Cipher, it reads, "A SHOOTING STAR MAY FALL; CRACKS ARE HIDDEN IN THE WALL; ONE EYE WATCHES ALL."
  • The Journal has Dipper's notes from every episode except "Dipper vs. Manliness", "Little Dipper" and "Bottomless Pit." The last two might be because the book already has entries on the Height Altering crystals and the Bottomless Pit
  • The Journal has all pages from the show, except for the percepshroom page from "Little Gift Shop Of Horrors." The explanation could be that the page exists only in "Abaconings," a story made up by Stan that could not be canonical, and not in the real Journal 3.

    • I called it and I got the message just a couple days ago
    • Lasted longer than I expected, although maybe it only works in certain areas and I have a question now, how long will the number last?
  • FORD AND MANLY DAN?

    3 messages
    • Maybe Ford never actually met Dan; he just stayed at his cabin while he was away.
    • McGucket and the SotBE minding wiping everything about the Supernatural. Manly Dan could have easily forgotten about Ford himself.
