Rebecca Solnit, author of ‘Wanderlust’ and ‘The Faraway Nearby’, takes the reader on a journey through the concept of loss. The way she’s able to distinguish between ‘losing things’ and ‘being lost’ is a message that persists throughout, and one that can help you feel fully present in the moment while off on your own life-changing adventure.
MarkMaker Amanda Valdez says… “A contemporary classic for the landscape and art lover. Solnit weaves together the most insightful essays on traveling, loving, losing, observations of the landscape, personal failures and victories.
“Every other chapter is dedicated to some rumination on the color blue, whether it’s the blue of the mountains during pre-dawn or the particular blue found in Chinese porcelain. I created the Gemini constellation Castor and Pollux out of circular cyanotype drawings on fabric just from coming across the word cyanotype in her essay.”
