Based on author Lauren Homandrsquo;s popular blog and book of the same title, this calendar features a yearandrsquo;s worth of lovingly hand-lettered mantras that are both familiar and funny: andldquo;I wonandrsquo;t eat all the French fries.andquot; andquot;These heels donandrsquo;t hurt.andrdquo; Yeah, right.
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.
11,002 Things to Be Miserable About
is a list of all the reasons NOT to wake up in the morning. Ironically enough, when you put all of them under one cover, its actually very funny. This decidedly absurd inventory of misery is perfect for sardonic and disaffected youth, for people seeking gifts for Traumatic Event Birthdays (like 21, 25, 30, 40, and, well, anything after 40), and for anyone else with an offbeat sense of humor. Enjoy.
Some of the entries are pretty basic, like imitation crabmeat, student loans, and David Hasselhoff, but other entries actually include educational things, like: Dust mites, which make up one-third of the weight of a six-year-old pillow. See, you can laugh and learn.
