This evocative little point-of-sale book proposes a series of conceptual activities to help the reader ameliorate the pain that results when someone or something is missing from their lives.
Combining the practical and the abstract, the activities have a Fluxus-style poignancy that will strike a chord with anyone who has experienced the desolation of a broken heart.
Examples of activities include: Spend one minute writing a list of all the things you can remember doing with the person that you miss. When one minute is up, stick the list to a window so that it can be seen from outside.
Prepare a dish that reminds you of a person or place. Get your hands dirty. Feel the food as you cook it. Taste it every step of the way…. Play music to accompany the food. Set the table for a celebration but invite nobody. Chew in time to the music. Let the flavours and sounds become one.
With beautiful, stripped back illustration and elegant packaging, this book will be a striking and affordable point-of-sale book with lots of impulse-buy and gift potential.
