And just like that, my new book "Pop Charts: 100 Iconic Song Lyrics Visualized" was published this week by HarperCollins! I'm feeling incredibly grateful for the support and love from friends, family and beyond!
Hey friends! As a way to say thank you to all of the folks supporting my #bookofpopcharts project, I'm mailing out some free art print postcards from the series while supplies last. I wish I could see exactly who is placing preorders for the book so I could send thank you notes directly but that's not exactly how things work, sooooo if you want a bit of personalized please go sign up over at my design studio www.flightdesign.co/shop! No purchase necessary. The postcard will contain a mystery image from the new book. I just mailed out the first batch today and am feeling some serious gratitude for all of the people out there who have made this random little creative project possible.
Friends in the SF Bay Area: Save the date of July 12 for our local San Francisco launch party of #bookofpopcharts at @thebinderysf on Haight street! ️ 7-9pm. Tickets available at bit.ly/popchartslaunchparty. Includes a musical performance by Laura Weinbach of @foxtailsbrigade, book signing by myself and some celebratory cocktails and good times with the rest of my team @flightdesign (who I truly couldn't have completed this winding book process without). The Booksmith had been one of my very favorite local bookstores for years (within walking distance of the flat I've lived in since 2003) and it's such an honor to get to debut this book with them in their lovely new event space. Pinching myself a bit. Should be a fun night, hope to see some of your faces there!
It's hard to believe it's actually here ... but the book I've been working on with the nice folks at @harpercollinsus is available for pre-order and ships June 26th! Link in profile. I started this whole thing as a personal submission to the #100dayproject (it was originally titled Lyrical Natural Sciences) and never imagined it would have sent me on this winding journey into publishing. A whole new world to say the least! My first preview copy arrived in the mail the other day and I'm still pinching myself and wondering if it's actually real. Still not 100% sure. A huge thank you to my @flightdesign team, friends and family for all of the support along the way. I'm currently working on some local launch events and will be sharing more sneak peeks over the next month. Fifty of the songs are all new, so for those of you who have been following along since the beginning, there will definitely be some things you haven't seen before. Can't wait to share more soon! #bookofpopcharts (Pre-order ships June 26: https://amzn.to/2I2dpq8)
Eeek, the first round physical proofs arrived from HarperCollins today! This book situation is feeling increasingly real.
Well, today was exciting. For those of you who may not have heard, I've been working on something of a secret project for a while now. The song lyric prints from my project are on their way to becoming a book! 📚 We're on the third pass of design and I just had the pleasure of visiting the nice folks at HarperCollins so ... I'm pretty sure it's real. Still a bit of a wait (comin' at ya in Summer 2018) but one step at a time.
