Because if Anyone’s Got Insight Into this Little Thing Called Life, It’s This Woman

A distinctly remember the day a friend introduced me to Anaïs Nin. She stopped me mid-conversation, gave me a once over and resolutely decided that I must start reading her. And so that evening I sat down with one of her diaries and haven’t looked back ever since.

Nin kept immaculately detailed journals from age eleven until her death, and each one bursts with gems of wisdom regarding creativity, life, love, the foibles of human nature and relationships. Lisa Congdon brings some of Anaïs Nin’s illuminating words to life through her illustrations in the style of her 365 Days of Hand Lettering project.
