A book that's more than a book. Turn its pages (made up of varying and beautiful papers) and indulge in the acts of reading, savouring illustrations and inspirational quotes, creating paper crafts and colouring pages.... and by taking the time to do so, experience a calming, a slowing down, and a sense of mindfulness to balance the rush of the modern world.
Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst are the cofounders and creative directors of Flow magazine, a popular international publication packed with paper goodies and beautiful illustrations that celebrates creativity, imperfection, and life's little pleasures. They both live outside Amsterdam.
"A Book That Takes Its Time... wooed me with its smart design and abundance of what the editors call "goodies" that make it a paper product-lover's interactive feast. This is way more than a book: It's loaded with pullouts like stickers, postcards and more." -- Book Page, a Top Pick for Lifestyle
