Description

Sixty international, prize-winning artists put a fresh visual spin on the many facets and values of friendship in this quirky, contemporary combination of pictures and words. Each artist has chosen and illustrated a quotation they find particularly inspiring and personally meaningful, resulting in a selection of lesser-known quotes and surprising sayings, from Chilean novelist Roberto Bolano to Senagalese feminist and writer Mariam Bâ, sports announcer Ed Cunningham, Mark Twain, Muriel Barbery, Ethel Barrymore, and many others. The art styles range from sweet to graphic, abstract, cartoon, graphic novel, representational, collage, and more. In a beautiful gift package, with a foreword by Lydia Denworth, author of the acclaimed book Friendship, the honest, heartfelt-with-attitude approach of You & Me Are So Nice Together is the perfect antidote to the overly sentimental odes to the enduring and never-more-important gift of friendship. Two pull-out postcards featuring art from the book are included as a bonus feature.

This is the kind of book which you open up while browsing through the shelves but then you finish up reading in one go because you wouldn't stop flipping the pages. Warned you!

The collection of quotes, the colourful pages, the unique art and illustrations and the burst of emotions: get ready for it.

This is the perfect book gift you can gift yourself or anyone whenever the occasion arrives. Let's celebrate friendship. This one is just too special!

Thank you, publishers, for the advance reading copy!

This collection of. musings and reflections on friendship is lovely. I really appreciate the diversity and uniqueness of each illustration. How clever to bring together a different artist for each quote! This would make a sweet gift for a friend. I'd love to see some of the illustrations and accompanying quotes printed into notecards or hanging prints, as well. My thanks to Storey Publishers and NetGalley for an advanced digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
