A treasure - but be clear on what it isn't,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Heart Wanders (Hardcover)
This book feels amazingly special - but it was quite different from what I expected, even after reading the existing reviews here.
It's very hefty - solid heavy end-boards and excellent quality paper, the publishers and printers have really gone to town here. The design of course is just gorgeous - but then it's a book where the design is at the heart of it (and there is a lovely surprise at the end).
However, if you were to buy this book for visual ideas for decorating, however open-minded you are, I think you might be disappointed. Many pages are simply background with a few leaves on, say, or some petals. The words and the personal story are very important here. It's about personal discovery. It is a book to read, to cherish and to mull over, rather than to flip through (and flipping is one of my greatest pleasures so I don't mean that dismissively). It will certainly inspire but more through ideas, thoughts and the time that it bubbles away at the back of your mind rather than specific images.
