About this title


A timeless tale of self-discovery, inspiration, and empowerment," The Story of the Heart" playfully and poignantly explores the many facets of love. This irresistible volume follows the Heart on its journey to find its place in the world. From uncertain beginnings, the Heart soon finds answers wherever it travels-- in the beauty of a small heart-shaped petal of an aromatic poppy, in the kiss of a just-married couple, in the memory of a lost friend, in a bold moment of adventure-- and in doing so, discovers its great capacity to love.
Featuring the signature vibrant, colorful illustrations and warm prose style of acclaimed artist Sandra Magsamen, "The Story of the Heart" is a gift of love itself. Page after page, Magsamen's calligraphy combines with special, interactive features to make the book a real treasure: a work seemingly crafted by hand. These features include a specially sewn binding and red cardboard heart on the cover; die-cut images; a ten-page miniature book; a blue velvet heart; lift-the-flap squares; plus specially cut and fold-out pages.
With its universally appealing message of love, wisdom, and celebration of life, "The Story of the Heart "is an inspiring token of affection year-round. It is a real treat for the heart, the soul, and the senses!
