She teaches a workshop called “How to Make Mistakes on Purpose,” and has been a professor of graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design. Her New York Notebook is on sale at the George Pompidou Center in Paris, and everyplace else that’s cool. Her first picture book, And To Name But Just a Few: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, was named a Scholastic Parent & Child Best Book of 2007. She is also a painter, speaks Swedish like a native New Yorker, and appeared as “Woman” on “The Sopranos.”


More About the Author

principal of rosenworld, a design, illustration and animation studio. actually there is no studio, miss rosenwald works alone, and rosenworld doesn't exist. in spite of this, www.rosenworld.com was launched in 1995. paints on wood with hot, colored wax, in other words, encaustic- a sadly misunderstood medium, much misused by hobbyists and housewives who enjoy the smell of burning flesh.
authored "all the wrong people have self-esteem", an inappropriate book for young ladies, and frankly, anybody else.

And the best thing is, IT ALL MAKES SENSE.

Laurie Rosenwald's books are hysterically funny, witty, beautifully and outrageously designed and always hit the mark.
Nancy A. Kintisch
I read the book and didn't think it was worth the paper that it is printed on.

What a refreshing pleasure it is to have a Laurie Rosenwald book in your hands. Bright and funny and sophisticated and wise and playful and creative and tactile and amusing and most of all, so deadly honest, which we could all use a little more of in this world.

Rosenwald exalts us with extreme truth expressed with so much original spunk and clarity, you'll feel inspired to bake Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Muffins," a concept introduced in the book where you combine ingredients which don't go together...and YET THEY DO! Like beets and chocolate. Like vegetarians and meat. Laurie speaks in fluent collage. She combines bits of images, paint, rants and ideas like a surrealist writing a survival manual. And the best thing is, IT ALL MAKES SENSE. I have never met a book so vastly original, strange, poetic, hilarious, helpful and hip all at once. Laurie Rosenwald makes THINKING FUN... which is why this is an excellent book for all minds that love to frolic.

This is a great book for teenage girls to flip through. It's not very educational, but it has some good pointers about self-acceptance and being unique. The style of the book is like a collage with pictures and articles. I wouldn't use it as a main source to teach self-esteem, but if it's great for a teenager to flip through.

Format: Paperback
This book is hysterical. Laurie Rosenwald's observations are funny, dead-on and unique, and she has a way of make social criticisms wildly entertaining. I always enjoy her work, and I hope she does more of this in the future. It's a great book for teen girls, sure, but her humor and style is genderless and ageless.

I love love love this book. Where else can you get in-your-face brutal honesty that is socially acceptable from obnoxious teenagers but not from those of us who still kick and scream over stuff that other grown ups, well, think that we should just get over? I am not a big Darwin fan (yeah, go ahead, I'm used to that), but in the Laurie Rosenwald world, I could totally sit beside him on a plane. A must have.

Don't miss Dave in his Peruvian chullo hat (he is so bad!), excellent McCullers references, warnings about foreign dinner conversation, and advice to boys on eating soup. Way cool and very informative. This should be used as a textbook for, um, something or other.

Being the parent of a 14-year-old girl I'm happy to have found Rosenwald's book. At first glance it may seem flip or a bit goofy, but there is quite a bit of earnest, useful advice for young women that is written in a direct and heartfelt matter. Highly recommended.

Buy this book! Laurie brings a fresh, new, amazing approach to children's books. A mix of cut paper, collage, found objects, and information presented in a fresh insightful way. Laurie's work is a high wire juggling act that all works together, bold design, art, and typography.
