• Hardcover: 128 pages
A beautiful and uplifting collection of heartfelt, hand-lettered full-color artwork and soothing messages that provide compassion and connection for everyone feeling overwhelmed in their lives.
All of This is for You is balm for anyone feeling lost and detached from today’s confusing, hectic world. In her luminous four-color hand-lettered artwork and accompanying heartfelt notes, acclaimed illustrator Ruby Jones reminds us that even when times are tough, it remains important to be kind and gentle with ourselves and those around us.
Jones received worldwide recognition after she posted an illustration of two women—one of them a Muslim wearing a hijab—embracing after the 2019 Christchurch terrorist attacks. The image was accompanied by an extraordinary message of empathy and understanding: “This is your home and you should have been safe here.”
A beacon of hope and kindness, All of This is for You is for every one of us, because no matter the individual issue—whether it’s self-image, identity, depression, grief, or anxiety—we all struggle with challenges. Jones’s gentle illustrations and soothing insights are a breath of fresh air during tough times, and a reminder of humanity’s inherent and enduring goodness.
