Sophie Blackall is best known as an illustrator of books for young readers, but in Missed Connections, she extends her readership to include all those who think of others. On her blog, she explained the purpose of her book thusly: "Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down."
