Book ~ "Find it in Everything" (2014) Drew Barrymore

From Goodreads ~ "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. 

A very 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. 

I finished Barrymore's book, WildFlower, today so thought I'd check out this one.  I find it interesting to see what people take pictures of.

Barrymore has always loved hearts.  This is a short book (less than 100 pages) full of pictures that she has taken of hearts.  With some, there are some sentences of how she felt about the picture.

It was a fun book to look at but definitely one you would borrow from the library.

Here are some samples of her pictures.
