The world, or a least a very large chunk of it, is obsessed with the "Missed Connections" personal ads. Sophie Blackall is one of them. Fortunately for us, she's also a very gifted artist (she's the illustrator of the "Ivy and Bean" children's series among many others). She combines these two passions in this book to create a stunningly lovely, impossible to put down book. The longing, the romance, the regret and the humor that is so much part of these ads are visualized, fascinating, and unforgettable here. Go on, take a look!

It really makes you stop and think about how many missed connections you may have experienced. The illustrations were so imaginative and beautiful! (page 90 almost had me in tears) I cant wait for her next book!

The amazingly playful, yet serenely elaborate paintings drew me in to this resplendent artistic world. Sure, I had always wondered about the Missed Connections classifieds, but I had never really viewed and imagined them in the ways presented in this crafty little book. It is definitely one of my top ten books for 2011 due to its refreshingly light and amusing tone. I also loved the introduction, especially Sophie Blackall's recounting of her personal Missed Connection experiences. After finishing this book, I had to pull up Sophie's blog and look at all her other Missed Connections paintings, which are also brilliant! I can tell this will be a new addiction of mine. I recommend this to readers and artists alike! Rating: Clean Getaway (5/5) I received Missed Connections by Sophie Blackall from Workman Publishing.
