Right Now: Readings for Finding Hope and Creating Confidence

We have worked on a lot of books. Like our clients in the book publishing and book e-commerce space, we believe in the unique power of books to help people experience new ideas, to reflect, and to grow in all kinds of ways, personally and professionally.

During the strange pandemic time, books continued to be a great resource to find all kinds of things — humor, solace, recipes, business advice, and more. So when long-time collaborator Todd Sattersten mentioned he wanted to pull together a collection of readings for pandemic time, it offered the perfect opportunity to utilize design as therapy! (Can’t control coronavirus, can control a page layout!)

Right Now: Readings For Finding Hope and Creating Confidence during Crisis, is a curated set of reflections from varying perspectives and across time for how to live in times of crisis. It offers inspiration, practical tips, and even some recipes. Download a PDF. We also printed a small run with Newspaper Club. If you’d like a copy, drop a note.

It’s worth remembering that because we’re human, we start with two things: 
What’s the story I’m telling myself, and what’s the story I’m telling everyone else.”

— Seth Godin, “The semiotics of face masks”

Prepping and hoarding are not the same. Share what you have. Now is our opportunity to rethink and re-imagine the type of community you want in your life. Time to explore how our cultural need for individualism has kept us from the collective. Time to stop with binary thinking and be more expansive of our definitions for health, love, community and family.
