True happiness is doing what you love with passion and purpose. Designing this book has truly been a labour of love. The first batch finally arrived yesterday :) Whether I sell one or none, I would be more than happy to keep them all on my bookshelf to stare at all day (lol) I LOVE these books! It is a passion project that honours a season in my life and my beautiful mum's Samoan voice.
What's in the book? A "snapshot" of my Samoan upbringing. It is a handwritten and illustrated black and white journal. Read more about the inspiration & concept for the book here and our story about why/what we do here
Just a quick snapshot of inside book...Do you know someone that would love this book? There's plenty of space and lines for someone to write their dreams and vision. It is a 252-page blank lined journal sprinkled with a random collection of common sayings, songs, chore (feau) list and illustrations of my favourite Samoan food.
I'm not going to reveal every page on here as I want it to be a beautiful surprise. Oh, and the good news, if you live in Sydney or near Liverpool Whitlam Centre, we will be launching our first pop-up shop at the Samoan Independence Day on Monday, June the 12th. Come chat with us and see these books in the flesh and feel the love and attention that has gone into creating something truly unique. We only have a small batch as we are testing the market. How many? Well less than 50, so first in, first served and save on shipping costs, right? We will be launching online late June when the rest of our books arrive.
You are all welcome :)
