Books!

Personally, one of my favorite things here at Young Blood is our book section. It's seriously so much fun picking out new books to order and I always get so excited when they come in.. it's like Christmas.. except not presents for me, presents for me to look at :)

Here's a few new ones we got in!

Other People's Love Letters by Bill Shapiro... Okay, everyone likes to be snoopy sometimes.. and here's your chance to do it! Maybe it'll even give you a little confidence to send your dreamboat one!


Remember: A Seasonal Record by Nikki McClure. Okay this amazing lady makes all these images out of freaking cutting paper with an exacto.. WHAT? Not only are the pictures incredible to look at, you get to record memories, ideas, plans, and other goodness.

Relics and Reliquaries by Jeffrey Vallance. Jeffrey is an obsessive collector of relics and has been since his childhood. In 1971, he decided to start incorporating his collection into his artwork. He says his process of accumulating these treasures is lifelong.. but for now here's a book documenting just a small portion of this project!

Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It by Billee Sharp! Who doesn't need a book where you can learn how to cook a healthy meal for pennies..including homemade yogurt (!!!), clean your house with lemon and lavender, cure a soaking wet cell phone, and tips for indoor gardening! Shoot, I totally didn't know clove oil can cure a toothache!

Get your reading glasses on!
