The Isobel Journal: Just A Northern Girl From Where Nothing Really Happens, Isobel Harrop

16.95 AUD
The Isobel journal is no ordinary snapshot of a contemporary teenage life. A charming and vivid narrative scrapbook of the eighteen-year-old author's sketches, mini-graphic novels, photographs and captions, it captures her wit, her observations and her creative talent as she takes us through the three central themes in her life: 'Love', 'Friends, Art and Otters' and 'Me'. Resonant of Laura Dockrill's mistakes in the background and with the powerful naive illustrative style of cult Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, this is a collector's gift for teenagers and all who have the teenage experience still in their hearts. 

Readers will emphasise with this witty and honest journal of a girl getting to grips with impending adulthood. It is a must-have for all hipster teenagers and anyone who appreciates the raw creativity of youth. Enchanting and poignant.
