Pink Olive: Olive Box

I feel so much love from Pink Olive. Not only did they host a lovely meet + greet for A Mother is a Story, they also included it in their latest Olive Box.

In case you don’t already know, OliveBox is a monthly subscription service for paper lovers. Every month, members receive a delightful box of paper & lifestyle products delivered to their front door. When customers sign up for OliveBox, they will not only be giving this gift to themselves, but they will be receiving something they can gift forward. The idea behind OliveBox was born out of love for creative finds by Grace Kang, former buyer of Bloomingdale’s and Barneys and founder of popular Pink Olive gift boutique in NYC.

“This month’s OliveBox is a truly special ode to moms and Mother Nature alike, including two limited edition products made just for you as our subscriber. Here’s a look at what’s inside:

  • In A Mother Is A Story (published by Abrams), artist and author Samantha Hahn’s lush watercolor illustrations pair perfectly with hand-lettered quotes about the joys, challenges, and blessings of motherhood. The wise and whimsical tome makes a perfect present for mom, intended to be treasured for years.
  • We also worked with Samantha to bring you an exclusive art print, just for OliveBox members, based on one of our favorite pages from the book.”

A Mother is a Story: New York Public Library Exhibit (April 2016)

3window detail2

The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building of the New York Public Library, located on Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street, is a prominent historic landmark in the beautiful Beaux-Arts architectural style. The main branch of the system, the Schwarzman is known for its soaring fifty-foot ceilings, classical marble facades, and miles of bookshelves running beneath Bryant Park behind it. The library has been a destination for book lovers for over a century. My dream came true for a second time when the NYPL asked me to design an exhibit featuring art from my book, A Mother is a Story: A Celebration of Motherhood, for the front window of the lovely bookshop on the main floor.

I enlisted the help of the most talented multimedia artist, Eloise Corr Danch. Eloise created gorgeous paper stars and flowers plus a huge 3D mock-up of the book with incredible deckle edges to make it seem full of pages. Amanda Smith, the visual manager at NYPL turned my sketch into an actual installation plan and physically installed the exhibit along with Eloise (I helped but without them it would have looked like a 7th grade school presentation). Erik Heywood of the incredible Book Shop generously gave us his stunning book cases to showcase actual spreads along the base of the display. Print Space did a beautiful job on the book cover print. Special thanks to Helene Silver, Elana Sinsabaugh and Abrams books.

The exhibit will be up through the month of May. Please swing by to check it out and pick up a signed copy of the book and journal for Mother’s Day and beyond.

Here’s a peek at more images of the exhibit and the installation: Continue Reading →
