Editor and illustrator Arthur Jones has turned ubiquitous little yellow pads of sticky notes into a clever book, Post-it Notes Stories, and crafted an enticing promotional video. It all began when he was bored on his job and started doodling on the easily available Post-its. Along the way it morphed into a reading series and now has made the transition into print.
Jones says the book “features some stories that are old favorites and some new work by some of my favorite writers and performers. Admittedly it’s a book that’s hard to explain — part non fiction anthology, part graphic memoir — but it’s easy to figure out once you open it.” It’s akin to a graphic novel with words and pictures working in harmony to tell the story.
There are an impressive list of contributors and I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands on the book. You might too once you see the book-trailer video. You can find it at an independent bookstore near you.
