Summary (from Goodreads):
“From Golden Globe Award–nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his online creative coalition hitRECord, and in collaboration with the artist Wirrow, comes Volume 3 in the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories series.
To create The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known within the hitRECord.org community as RegularJOE, directs thousands of collaborators to tell tiny stories through words and art. With the help of the entire creative collective, he culls, edits, and curates the massive numbers of contributions into a finely tuned collection.
The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 3 once again brings together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size.”
This is one of my absolute favorite series and the fact that it comes out this time of year makes it almost like a Christmas present to myself (or, just as accurately, Harper Collins’ and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Christmas present to me—so thank you!).
I absolutely love these little glimpses into people’s lives and personalities. It’s like PostSecret (and yes, I know I make that comparison every single time I review one of these).
The little illustrations are absolutely beautiful. Sometimes sweet and funny, sometimes sad but always lovely.
My favorite ones:
“You promised you’d never let go…”
“There were memories in that melody.”
“Blessed are they that crumble; from them new worlds are made.”
“Everything has a beginning, even the end.”
These books are just really good for my soul. It seems like in every volume, I find a few that give me things to think about and several more (see the ones posted above) that just really resonate.
Like its predecessors, this book is perfect. Highly recommended.
