The Book of Conversations is a collection of questions, each one a conversation starter. It’s the intrigue of exploring someone and discovering what lies beneath. Some questions are deep, some trivial and some you will never forget.

However, just words were not enough. Images provoke people in ways that words sometimes can’t. 120 artists, graphic designers, creative directors, art directors, photographers, illustrators and animators were approached and were each given a question.

Their task was to provoke this question with an image. The image could make the reader cry, shout, laugh or think. But most importantly, it should get them to talk.

Along with the support from all the contributors, part of the proceeds from this book will go towards benefiting three children’s charities. Warchild.org, globalfundforchildren.org and soschildrensvillages.org.uk.
