Vesna's first book in the Notes Before You Go series was originally created for her son who was leaving for university. It contains a culmination of advice and inspiration to get the most out of the journey that lies ahead.
This book takes the concept of the first instalment and applies it to the author's daughter this time. It is at once deeply personal and all-encompassing. The passages sometimes contain words of wisdom that can benefit any young person. At other times, it contains the type of advice that is specific to a mother's and daughter's bond. At these moments, it ascends to a level that the first book couldn't quite reach.
The writing in Notes To My Daughter is more detailed than ever, and there is more content to take in. Black and white photographs are plentiful and relate to the life of a young woman with greater ease.
This is a far more thoughtful gift than a greeting card. It is something your daughter can hold on to and revisit in the future because the advice is timeless. If your daughter is leaving home for the first time, passing this on will show her you have a knack for impeccable timing.
Any young man needs to do some soul searching before venturing off into the "real world." As humans we learn and grow along our journey. However, sometimes we need to remind ourselves how to get the most from life.
Vesna Bailey's book was originally intended as an inspirational guide for her own son. It equipped him with his mother's last minute words as he left for university. This gives the book deeply personal warmth, yet at the same time the advice is applicable to just about anyone.
The book is broken down into short passages. Sometimes the statements are sphinx-like, requiring the reader to do some introspection to draw a deeper meaning. Other times specific wisdom is imparted. For example, one section discusses showing respect for people with different views, even when you are heavily invested in an ideology.
Stunning black and white photography is used throughout to illustrate the lessons found inside or simply to inspire.
A genre of books seems to be replacing greeting cards. In my eyes, this is a positive trend since this sends a far more thoughtful statement to the recipient. If your son is gearing up for the big time, include this along with something practical he'll need in his travels.

I saw this movie at a friends house. The film had a chilling vibe, right from the first scene on the subway. The closeup shots of the lead were long and incredibly eerie. It put me in a frame of mind that no other film has. So I commend the EXPERIENCE of the DVD.
Yes it's short and the quality of the audio and video are not the greatest. However! I like it for what it is. It's faults give it character and make it even more bone rattling. One other thing---It's gruesome!
If you collect these kind of movies. BUY IT, and watch it occasionally with your friends when you don't have much time....Read more
The writer's in this book are excellent. That may go without saying. But what really makes this book stand out is how each writer is liberated their own section of the book. It's amazing, that asked the same question: "How do you write your copy", each came up with a completely different answer. Ed McCabe's writing is especially insightful. It makes me wonder if people with this much talent should have graduated already...to making movies. The book was published by a British Art Directors group, so feel reassured, people of copy, people of art appreciate your laboured yet witty long copy ads....Read more
If you learn about design from reading, this book isn't for you. It teaches by giving visual examples. The text does nothing more than analyze the design. It has the same feel as an award book. The work is outstanding and worldwide, but mostly from the UK. The writing is decent but mostly lacks depth. The examples, devine....Read more
There is little depth to this text. However, It might be a fine introductory selection for someone who knows little to nothing about the subject. For those better versed, skip it.
One annoying thing about the book is: The design in the book itself is lame. It also deals with sample design solution that are, you guessed it, lame.
This book is the ideal choice of a local newsletter layout-master....Read more
