My book is finally a reality! I am so proud to announce that a book that began its life as a twinkle of a notion of an alternative sort of art class three years ago, has turned into a lighthearted, fun, 72-page guide to enjoying ourselves in a whole new way.
“Imagine having instant access to a peaceful state of mind, simply by taking notes on what you see.”
That’s what it says on the back cover, and it’s true.
See for yourself. Both the ebook and paperback are now available worldwide on Amazon. You can search for “Look at That!” or Bobbie Herron, or use this link.
Many people avoid using Amazon, I know, so I made the paperback also available through a wonderful website whose mission is to keep our beloved local bookstores thriving. The link is here.
The Kindle/ebook version (only on Amazon) is very inexpensive right now, but not for long! It will remain at the crazy price of $1.99 for this week only, until November 29th. If you’re not yet sure about ordering the paperback, try the ebook first. As a new fan said, “If you like the ebook, you will LOVE the paperback!”
This past week my team and I worked hard behind the scenes, and I am thrilled that “Look at That!” has reached #1 New Release status in four categories!
#1 New Release Art Reference, Landscape Painting, Art Study and Teaching, and Graphic Design Pen & Ink Drawing!
How cool is that!
Here are some quotes from recent customers:
“This book is a take-you-by-the-hand journey into the Present Moment through the magical world of the sketchbook.”
“This sweet book inspired my non-artistic self to give sketching a try, not to create a work of art, but to soothe my mind and spirit.”
“This little book is such a fun way to truly SEE. It’s remarkably deep but deceptively simple, and I love how the author’s humor and joy come through every page. I highly recommend it!”
“This book was a great find! Not only did it inspire me to move from thinking about sketching and visual journaling to actually doing it, it also made me see the world differently.”
The book description on the Amazon page will tell you everything you need to know, and the “Look Inside” feature is activated so you can even read a bit of the book right there.
It is a perfect holiday gift for artists and non-artists alike, trust me. My goal was to find a way to take you by the hand, go for a walk together, pointing out things you pass by every day but have never seen until this very moment. I think I succeeded.
If you enjoy it, let me know here, and please, spread the word! Share this blog post, talk it up on social media, tell your friends! The world could use a “Look at That!” bit of peace right now.
