A quirky, creative companion that offers a pick-me-up on every page
 
On the heels of his internationally successful first book, 1 Page at a Time, graphic designer and illustrator Adam J. Kurtz delivers another intimate and engaging journal for anyone who loves to explore ideas, record thoughts and feelings, and capture those fleeting but amazing moments of everyday life.
 
Unlike a linear journal, this book can be opened up to any page, encouraging and engaging readers time and time again through continued use. Rather than simply complete tasks and turn pages, users are encouraged to leave their mark, and if they land on the same page days or weeks later, they can review, reflect, and revise their previous response.
 
Feeling lonely? Pensive? Peeved? Questioning? This deceptively simple book offers perspective, hope, and a twist of existential metaphor – and is perfect to pick up again and again.

Customer Reviews of Pick Me Up: A Pep Talk For Now And Later

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion A great daily companion to record thoughts and feelings. It is set up in a playful way but I think it could be very useful for those of us who are dealing with mental health issues or just going through a rough patch. I like the idea of filling stuff out and then going back to see how my state of mind has changed and hopefully improved.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is helping me live my best life and Adam J. Kurtz is my fave therapist!" –Tavi Gevinson, Editor-in-Chief, Rookie   "I am so grateful to have Pick Me Up in my life. It saves me so much money on therapy and is way more fun anyway. Stay in, order a pizza and scribble your way out of that deep dark hole." –Michelle Branch, musician“Adam J. Kurtz is a magician: the alchemist of paper and pencil, rendering our inner lives visible, tactile and full of potentiality. He reminds us that creativity is the coolest of all resources--infinite, fun, free--and that we are blessed to have it.” –Melissa Broder, author of So Sad Today
