My full review can be found on United by Pop.
Edited by Guinevere de la Mare, this gorgeous book may be small but what it lacks in size it makes up for in content. This contains a selection of beautiful and varied paintings, illustrations, photography, typography, essays, quotations, and poems all...

ALL THE STARS AND MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THIS BOOK SHOULD HAVE BEEN HUNDREDS OF PAGES LONGER 😭🙌🏼📚📚

I’ll give it 4 stars for the first essay and the book art, but the middle two essays bothered me. One by Ann Patchett and the other by Maura Kelly espoused the sort of book snobbishness that drives me crazy. They seem to say that if you’re not reading classics or literary fiction, you’re wasting...
