This week’s edition of BBorB features Open Hearts Family by Jane Seymour. I picked up this small book when I had the opportunity to meet the legendary actress a few months ago. It took me a while to read it because I have been super busy. I’m embarrassed to admit that considering it’s roughly the size of a bathroom tile and a grand total of 125 pages of quotes and art work…not exactly a heavy read.
This book (as well as all of the Open Hearts titles) make a lovely gift for someone who has everything. Think Mom, Grandma, Aunt, teacher or friend. The artwork (all done by Seymour) is lovely and the quotes are inspiring, but it would not have been a book I would have bought for myself. That being said. I am very impressed with Seymour’s art and I would love to see a book of her portfolio and learn more about her technique since it is unlikely I will ever be able to see the full-size paintings in a gallery anytime soon.
Bag It unless for a gift…then the Open Hearts Series is a great choice!
