Review quote

"We hope that The Art of Discovery is savored, and provides inspiration. Everyday life is full of challenges and information overload, and the concept of time has become a most precious gift. The Art of Discovery captures that singular "moment" in time that acts as your own personal muse. The Art of Discovery is meant to encourage the all of us to ignite our own curiosity through music, film, art, photography and literature while at home and on the road. Wake up America! It's time to go buy the book in order to preserve the arts." -Huffington Post "In a lavish new coffee-table book, The Art of Discovery, glamorous photographs of glittering stars are matched with beautiful typography by spelling out a moment of discovery or inspiration. It's an easy book to get lost in; you can flip to any page and find something interesting, like Jason Alexander with a dove on his head, accompanied by a story about wanting to be a magician." -Vanity Fair

"Immerse yourself in one hundred intimate portraits of celebrities relating personal stories about their inspirations..." -Society Diaries
