Book Description

28 Aug 2007
In a world obsessed with 'reality' programming, the collaborative public art project known as "Learning To Love You More" offers a refreshing take on how people think, act and love. Created by Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher, the web-based project, begun in 2002, offers more than sixty 'assignments' that can be completed by anyone: 'Write the phone conversation you wish you could have'; 'Draw a constellation from someone's freckles'; 'Take a flash photo under your bed.' Completed assignments are posted on the web site; to date, more than 5,000 people have participated - artists and non-artists of all ages, from Tokyo to Tel Aviv. July and Fletcher have curated a selection of the most memorable submissions - some moving, others hilarious and oddly brilliant, to create a pop culture collage that tells a larger story about life today. The result is an engaging, heartwarming, idea sparking book sure to inspire, teach, and entertain. Her film "Me And You And Everyone We Know" (Film Four) was a cult hit in 2005 - it won 15 Awards including the Golden Camera at Cannes and the Special Jury Prize for Originality of Vision at the Sundance film festival.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally inspiring 20 Sep 2008
By Sally
Format:Paperback
i love this book.
if you arent familiar with the project look at the website.
all bits in the book are on the site but feels much better to hold them in your hands.
makes me laugh and cry.
its an art project by a lot of non-artists. or artists working in a different medium than they normally would. big photos. short stories, tiny snippets.
every home should have one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Beautiful. 3 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a deeply personal look into peoples lives. A small collection from the original website with the same title name. It tells stories through art, words and pictures, an inspiring book that gives you hope for humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars learning to love you even more 1 Feb 2011

***** A great art project translated into a great book. It's like everything July touches becomes gold. A must have if you are into her work or into contemporary free/open art in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It 14 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I might be slightly biased, as I kind of adore Miranda July, but the project that she and Fletcher undertook - unpon my hearing about it, late - sounded brilliant. I love doing little things like this (the 'tasks' include taking a picture beneath your bed, writing out a conversation that you've never had, etc.) and the little prompts brought on bouts of inspirations and ideas. Other people's submissions of the 'tasks' have also been included, which is great to look/read through. It's full of anecdotes, and provides a great example of 'how real people write', which can always come in handy for writers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the website 6 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Not as good as the website of the same name which spawned it, not in my mind anyway. But that's like saying Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca is not as good as Daphne DuMaurier's, they're still both superb. Miranda July seems to turn to gold, anything she touches, whether film, short story or art. The book details, in a slightly more linear and less exciting manner most, but not all, of the art displayed on the project website. The best bit on the website for me is the challenge inviting people to introduce their own challenge, this isn't recorded in the book. There is a leaning towards four or five challenges mainly, and then a full list in the back pages. What can I say, the project was genius, but the book disapoints if you know the website.
