Summary:
"I spent 15 months writing, illustrating and designing this book. It is a book meant for holding and reading, curled up in your favourite chair.

Abstract:

"I spent 15 months writing, illustrating and designing this book. It is a book meant for holding and reading, curled up in your favourite chair. Every single illustration is new, created for the book, and the content is not about my work (i.e. not a monograph), but instead combines graphic art with the written word, and lends my own contemplative but frequently amused voice to my observations of the world. Some of the articles were originally published as blog posts for the now-archived blog Speak Up, but they have been resurrected, edited, rewritten and given new life in these pages. Those quirkier writings are interspersed between more philosophical musings on the nature of Wonder and Honour and Memory as they pertain to graphics and the visual world around us."
