What It Is
I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my copy of What It Is by Lynda Barry from amazon. Part autobiography, part picture book, part activity book, Ms. Barry explores philosophical questions such as "Can we imagine something that we can't remember?" through her drawings, collages, watercolors, etc. I decided to become an owner of this book after reading this NYT review. Today I also found it mentioned in Julia Rothman's blog, Book By Its Cover. Rothman shows pictures and writes about art, design, handmade, comics, or children's books that she finds and enjoys. I want to own them allllll, each and every one.
