About the Author
Elizabeth Gray (@thegraytergood) is recognized for her black and white work and modern sense of style. In 2017, she took a leap of faith and left her culinary day job to be a freelance letterer, despite being self-taught and having no background in professional design. Since then, she has managed to build a successful Etsy shop, grow a huge social media following, land multiple interviews in print and online, and partner with companies to illustrate product packaging, and worked with brands such as Dyson, Sharpie, USA Network, Archer + Olive, and TikTok.
In addition to embracing the homebody lifestyle, the book acts as a manifesto of mindfulness. It issues calls to rest and relish quiet moments spent with a good book, or in the adult equivalent of a blanket fort. It’s as much about connection to one’s self, reflection on priorities, and engaging in activities that bring one joy as it is about the location where those things happen. Its cozy hodgepodge of advice, encouragement, and reflection space complement its overall tone.
