I've been reading Sophie Blackall's Missed Connections blog for a long time now and it is extremely exciting to now have her book in our hot little Sun Bookshop hands!
Here's what she says about what she does:
Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down.
We also love Sophie's illustrations for the very excellent Ivy and Bean books - in stock now over in the Younger Sun.
