Following the success of such stylish and original gift books as The Pig of Happiness and A Lovely Love Story, Edward Monkton now assembles the drawings and thoughts that speak most eloquently to the happiness of everyone everywhere. So simple in concept yet often so mysteriously tricky in practice, happiness is many things to many people.
To best-selling artist, humorist, and philosopher Edward Monkton, happiness is an excellent basis for another clever collection of his amusing and inspiring thoughts and drawings. In this one, titled simply enough, Happiness, Monkton points out that the secret of happiness, as with the answers to so many of life's grander mysteries, has been right in front of us all along.
In Happiness, Monkton pairs his astute insights with his droll artwork to gain insight into this most-common-yet-elusive of emotions. Following the success of his stylish and highly original books The Pig of Happiness and A Lovely Love Story, Monkton has created a thoughtful and moving book that, like happiness itself, is appealing to us all.
Edward Monkton is the alter ego of urbane Eton and Oxford educated Giles Andreae, philosopher, poet, artist, and all-round interesting fellow.
