INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A new book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson, destined to be a classic―part therapy, part best friend, part humor, part coloring book.

When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw. Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online. At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph. And inevitably they ask her when will she publish a whole book of them. That moment has arrived.

You Are Here is something only Jenny could create. A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jenny’s amazingly intricate illustrations, all on perforated pages that can be easily torn out, hung up, and shared. Drawing on the tenets of art therapy―which you can do while hiding in the pillow fort under your bed―You Are Here is ready to be made entirely your own.

Some of the material is dark, some is light; some is silly and profane and irreverent. Gathered together, this is life, happening right now, all around, in its messy glory, as only Jenny Lawson could show us.

About the Author

Jenny Lawson is an award-winning humorist known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with mental illness. She lives in Texas with her husband and daughter and was constantly “buying too many books” (“Not a real thing,” she insists), so she decided to skip the middleman and just started her own bookshop, which also serves booze because books and booze are what magic is made of. She has previously written Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy, both of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers. She also wrote You Are Here, which inexplicably made it onto the New York Times bestseller list in spite of the fact that it was basically a very fun coloring book. She would like to be your friend unless you’re a real asshole. And yes, she realizes that this whole paragraph is precisely the reason she shouldn’t be allowed to write her own bio.

Wow – this book really made a big impression on me. It is not simply a coloring book, it is a collection of thoughts on life and how to cope. I had not read Jenny Lawson''s blog but I see that it is something I must do in the future. Her writing is funny, tells a great story and shows her struggle with finding her place in the world – in other words, pretty much what all of us are doing as well.
There is some profanity, which doesn''t bother me, but I mention it in case it is an issue with some.

The designs are outstanding. It''s wonderful that such a talented writer can express herself so beautifully in drawings as well. The subjects of the designs are all over the place and are quite detailed with some having a heavy use of black ink.

This is definitely the coloring book that I will keep at my side for a while to come. There is just so much to color and to read that it demands attention. I''m very happy to own it and plan on buying a copy for each of my daughters.

This is what I saw while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium.

160 pages with stories, life lessons, and fantastic coloring pages

The designs are printed on mostly one side of page (some are back to back)

Paper is mostly white (some color pages), heavy weight, slightly rough and has perforated pages.

Glue Binding but with perforated pages so removing a page is fairly simple.

The designs stop well before the perforations

Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper. If you use these with back to back page designs, the ink will ruin the design on the back of the page. For designs printed on one side of the page, I suggest either removing pages from the book to color or using a blotter page under your working page. I like card stock as it keeps ink from seeping through and damaging the pages below.

Water-based markers, gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows of color on the back of the page but do not bleed through the paper.

Coloring pencils work well with this paper. I was able to get good color, layer the same color and multiple colors and blend easily using a pencil style blender. I tested both oil and wax-based pencils with similar results.

This book just walked in my door and I flipped through it, reading the short quips on some of the pages. The first one I saw was "you will get through this" and it made me cry. I am usually pretty pulled together but the last week has been difficult and that was exactly what I needed to be reminded of. I am now on Amazon to purchase 4 or 5 more for my friends. Text friends, of course, I don''t have real life friends. That''s how we Generation X peeps do it.

First, I think it''s important to acknowledge that I consider Jenny Lawson a friend. Granted, I think a few hundred thousand other people do too, so that acknowledgment might not carry much weight. Nevertheless, I wanted to be perfectly transparent from the opening line of this review. Spoiler alert: transparency is kind of a theme here.

Second, I''m not going to make this a numbered "list" review. That ends now. (Sorry, number people.)

If you''re familiar with Jenny Lawson''s two previous books, you already know what you''re in for with You Are Here. You know it''s going to be defined by a compelling strangeness that embraces your own strangeness as "perfectly normal." You know it''s going to be both blunt and sharp, concise and rambling, confident and uncertain, and many other paradoxical pairings. Because Jenny is all those things. And with You Are Here, she is once again sharing herself with you, fearlessly.

Except that''s not quite true. She''s just as afraid as you are. She just happens to have a wide, wild group of misfits surrounding her with love, weaving themselves together into a kind of human safety net that gives her the strength to publicly share her unfiltered, well-worn truth (this time, in words and pictures).

If you''re looking for a coloring book with butterflies you can color to subtly remind you just how inadequate you are compared to nature''s own coloring game, this isn''t a book for you. Jenny’s drawings are abstract, dreamlike. They’re lovely and twisty and turny and patterny and wistfuly [just go with it, Spellcheck] – the kind of doodles that are born at the intersection of beautiful and broken. And so are the accompanying encouraging words, whether written in Jenny’s familiar stream-of-consciousness style, or succinctly, as when she writes, “This is a safe place. Stay a while. You are welcome.”

By the way, that’s not “You’re welcome,” as in “glad I could do this for you,” but “You are welcome,” as in “come on in, stay a while, have some cookies, pet the cats, let’s watch Dr. Who together.” You see, that’s the magic of Jenny''s writing (and now her drawing, too) - it welcomes you. I mean, yeah, she sometimes talks about stabbing things. But it’s a welcoming kind of stabby. And who doesn’t prefer that kind of stabby?

Come for the pictures, stay for the words. Or come for the words, stay for the pictures. Then buy a copy for that friend you know who could use a little more “welcoming.” She’ll thank you. Then you’ll say “you’re welcome.” And then she’ll probably feel compelled to say “thank you” again. This could go on for days. You might want to plan for that. Bring snacks.

I''m done with this book, but I will never be done with this book. She didn''t intend for this to be a coloring book when she started compiling it, but people came to book signings with colored versions of the images she''d posted on her blog, so poof! it''s a coloring book *if you want it to be*. The pages are perforated if you want to tear your masterpieces out to share, hang up, or whatever. I''m not going to do that, but I am coloring the images. That was quite the decision, I must say, but Jenny says we should make this book our own, so that''s what I''m doing. I''m on my third picture, and I like that I can meditate on the message of the image or the text on the opposite page as I''m coloring. It''s relaxing and calming, and it helps to remember that I AM HERE, just as I should be.

Jenny has a unique ability to tell her story and write about her anxieties in such a way that those of us who read it and suffer from our own mental illnesses feel at home and feel understood. We are no longer alone. We have this incredible author who made this incredible book for us that helps us feel incredible, too. And through her blog I''ve found a tribe of friends who understand me and who I can help in my own little ways.

I will say that there is swearing in this book, and if that puts you off, then you shouldn''t get this book. But if you don''t mind a few F-bombs and feel like no one will ever understand all the seemingly horrible things going on in your mind, then you definitely should get this book. Get one for a friend, too, while you''re at it.

My therapist encouraged me for ages to draw mandalas as a way to meditate and focus on something other than the erratic train wreck that is my brain. Months later, after struggling with a blank pad of paper full of empty circles I preordered this baby the moment I heard about it. Now that I have it in my hands I am going to bring it to my therapist, because for some people starting with a blank page is difficult. This book is perfect for them, for me.

This book is like opening your own journal, flipping through the most meaningful pages, and learning something from them. So much of Jenny Lawson''s work can be encompassed by the idea of togetherness, and the idea that one is not alone simply because they feel that way- in fact there are thousands of others feeling just as alone or anxious or depressed in that moment too . This is a coloring book, an invitation to think about your own brain, and a collection of inspirational sayings and moments that help us to remember "we are here". A great gift or just to have- I would recommend if you like Jenny Lawson this is a must have. If you''re also looking for a book that describes someone wanting to understand the struggles of others as well- empathy in a book format, this a great one to get your started.
