Here's the sweetest reminder imaginable that it's the little things in life that make us happy. Little things like sharing tea with a friend. An ice cream cone with sprinkles. Parking the car in one go. Finding a forgotten item of clothing in the closet. The smell in the air right after a summer rain. A tiny, perfect impulse book filled with whimsical, colorful illustrations, plus cheerful random prompts, thoughts, and facts, The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures is a pocket-size gift of joy. Created by the editors of Flow magazine, it encapsulates the qualities that make their work so distinctive--the sensibility of slowing down and appreciating the simple moments of life, the emphasis on everyday creativity, and the joys of imperfection. Every page is an inspiration: Keep a journal, take a bike instead of the car, cook in an old cherished pot and remember who you inherited it from, use a fountain pen, take a walk with a friend. There's richness all around you--all you have to do is take notice.

From Flow, the groundbreaking international "magazine that takes its time," comes the first big book in a publishing partnership that celebrates mindfulness, creativity, beautiful illustration, a love of paper, and life's little pleasures. Flow is unique for a magazine in how it mixes articles, inspiring quotes, and what the editors call "goodies"--bound-in cards, mini-journals, stickers, posters, blank papers for collaging, and more--giving it a distinctly handcrafted, collectible feeling. A Book That Takes Its Time is both a book about mindfulness and a book that literally inspires mindfulness. It's like a meditation retreat between two covers. You can't hurry through it; it's the anti-page-turner. It's a book that makes you stop to savor, play with, and appreciate all the lovely and interesting detours that hands-on activities provide. Read an article on the benefits of journaling--then come to "The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook" tucked into the book. An essay on the power of being grateful is followed by pages of illustrated "Beautiful Moments" cards to fill in, punch out, save, and revisit. Suddenly being grateful becomes a habit. Readers will learn hand-lettering, the basics of collaging, even how to meditate while running. There's never been a book like A Book That Takes Its Time, a book that mixes reading and doing, to help readers live a more thoughtful life and have so much fun in the process.
