I'm not much of a recreational reader-I'd always prefer to knit or draw. However, I do have a small pile of books that have made their home in the Dartily studio. Here are a few of those books.
What Do You Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada Illustrated by Mae Besom
This is the book we are using as our script for the puppetry performance mentioned here. It follows a child who has an idea that they nurture. Then it grows and grows and grows, and changes the world!...Adorable!
This is one of my favorite lines:
Another good line: "This is MY idea, I thought. No one knows it like I do. And it's okay if it's different, and weird, and maybe a little crazy."
Good or Bad Design? by Odd Brochmann
I mostly have this one for the illustrations. They are classic, like this guy shaking his fist at the art.
Guide to Easier Living by Mary and Russel Wright
They embrace all the efficiencies that can come from following a modern minimalist aesthetic. It's another book with amazing illustrations like this one. Look at the dog in the crease of the book and the baby on the patio!
