Pick Me Up Book


Brooklyn-based artist and designer Adam J Kurtz’s second book “Pick Me Up: a Pep Talk for Now and Later” (the follow-up to “1 Page at a Time”) is part activity guide for adults and part therapy session. Not only are there spaces for drawing and writing poems, the majority of the pages are full of relatable modern-day anxieties and plenty of existential, dark humor. It’s not all doom and gloom though, there’s plenty of sweet and funny moments—along with sound advice.
