"I have always loved hearts," writes acclaimed actress Drew Barrymore in the foreword to this heartwarming gift book. "The way that continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing--it conveys love."
In Find It in Everything, Barrymore shares the photographs she has taken of heart-shaped objects and patterns she has come across over the past ten years. Some are obvious and others barely discernible. A discarded straw wrapper, a hole in a T-shirt, a scallion in a bowl of miso soup -- seemingly everywhere she turns her lens a heart reveals itself.
An incredibly personal collection of images, many of them accompanied by brief captions that reflect on beauty in the everyday, Find It in Everything is a delightful book from the beloved actress and director, who now adds photographer to her list of credentials.
