Synopses & Reviews
The gift of art, the gift of inspiration, the gift of joy. This dynamic illustrated book is brimming over with encouragement and wisdom and delivered with a fresh, modern twist. Pairing quotes with original graphic art that brings the words to life, Think Happy, Be Happy is a gallery of beauty and cheer inspired by the letterpress and screenprint art that's hot on Etsy and pinned and re-pinned by Pinterest's millions of fans.
The artwork is by more than twenty popular illustrators and designers, who transform simple but smart mottoes--from the contemplative "Find beauty in rain" to the upbeat "I make my own sunshine!" to the empowering "Don't shush your inner voice. It's who you are" to the joyful "Live every day like it's your birthday"--into bold and visually dynamic statements. This book is a delightful pick-me-up that can be read over and over again and bring comfort and affirmation every time.
Paired randomly throughout is unexpected, complementary text--themed play-lists, top-ten lists, and simple recipes. Because what's better to lift the spirits than a Watermelon Mint Ice Pop?
Ironically self-soothing and self-deprecating, Lauren Homand#8217;s cleverly rendered phrases (culled from her blog-turned-book Daily Dishonesty
) are pitch-perfect for a journal. Whether you are truly and#8220;over itand#8221; or not, this blank book provides a stylish space to vent, confess, and ponder. Scattered throughout the ruled pages are more full-color examples of Homand#8217;s hand-lettered work.and#160;
Lauren Hom, author of Daily Dishonesty
(an award-winning blog-turned-book), celebrates the harmless little lies we tell ourselves every day. With gorgeously hand-lettered type, Lauren transforms ironic statements into pin-able pieces of inspiration. These three portable notebooks (two large and one pocket-sized) have high-quality paperback covers and are sewn with colored thread. One notebook is lined, one notebook is blank, and one notebook has graph paper.
