“Capturing Brooklyn-based artist Samantha Hahn’s modern sensibility, A Mother Is a Story: A Celebration of Motherhood is a stunning collection of hand-lettered quotes and ethereal illustrations. Rendered in Hahn’s signature watercolors, the book portrays the shared experience of motherhood in all its glorious, messy, sublime beauty.

With quotes that range from witty and irreverent to touching and thoughtful, each page presents sentiments and snippets of wisdom that celebrate the spirit of motherhood. Contributions come from literary icons, political activists, lifestyle bloggers, fashion designers, and more.

A Mother Is a Story is published in conjunction with Stories for My Child: A Mother’s Memory Journal, a guided journal for capturing all the moments of motherhood, small and spectacular, from pregnancy through your child’s adolescence. Together or separately, they make the perfect gift for Mother’s Day and baby showers.”

 

Blurbs:

“Samantha’s beautiful illustrations make the mysteries of motherhood into an artistic journey and so lyrically captures all the moments which push and pull at our hearts as mothers on this amazing adventure.”–Christiane Lemieux, founder DwellStudio, author Undecorate and The Finer Things

“What I love most about this rich, beautiful book is how contradictory it is–because every mother is her own story, and their stories differ as much as the children those mothers produce. It’s all here–the wonder, the sacrifice, the hope, the obsession, the love.”–Emma Straub,New York Times best-selling author of The Vacationers

“Samantha’s gorgeous watercolors give life to the funny, touching and true moments of motherhood. A mother is a story–in this case, a very beautiful one.”–Joanna Goddard, blogger and founder of A Cup of Jo

A Mother Is A Story is a gorgeous book that goes right to the heart. I can’t get enough of Samantha’s stunning watercolors–they stay with me, and the words they illustrate come to mind as my own daily motherhood story unfolds.”–Gabrielle Blair, mother of six, blogger, andNew York Times best-selling author of Design Mom

“Being a mother is a magical experience and Samantha does a wonderful job capturing the beauty of this wild adventure.”–Lela Rose, fashion designer and author of Pret-a-Party

A Mother Is A Story is full of wisdom and beauty; each spread is a meticulously and lovingly crafted piece of art.”–Aran Goyoaga, Cannelle et Vanille blogger and author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats
