Life Stills is an imposing new volume that asks is to submerge ourselves in the tranquility of the page. Here, some of the world's finest illustrators capture the essence of calm. 

Despite being told that life is short and that we should enjoy it, it has become increasingly hard for modern people to find a moment of peace amid the restless hubbub of the modern world. Nevertheless, there is still happiness to be found in even the smallest things – from a fresh breeze in the morning to a warm cup of coffee in the afternoon, or just a beautiful sunset. 

Far from being bland, beige or new-agey, Life Stills is a thrilling excursion into the power of drawing to affect and manage our feelings.
