If you've been reading my blog, you'll know something about How to Be in the World: An Abecedarian Commonplace for Living. This portfolio includes 26 sheets that each contain an illuminated letter, a verb, and a favorite quotation relating to that verb. Written and drawn all in pencil, these pages were developed over a number of years. The entire portfolio was featured in Letter Arts Review, and I also made a clamshell box to hold the stack of original sheets.

The 2nd printing is now available for sale. Twenty-nine pages commercially printed on 67# card stock, enclosed in an embossed, printed folder. The price is $25 + shipping. For shipping within the US, choose $6 for USPS Ground or $11 for USPS Priority Mail.

There are at least 3 ways to purchase your copy of Hot to Be in the World:
  • order on this website — fill in the amount of either $31 or $36;
  • visit my Etsy shop;
  • email me for information on how to pay via Venmo or mail me a check.
