These photographs by Drew Barrymore reveal hearts found in everyday situations.
"I have always loved hearts," writes acclaimed actress Drew Barrymore in the foreword to this heartwarming gift book. "The way that continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing it conveys love." In Finding it in Everything, Barrymore shares the photographs she has taken of heart-shaped objects and patterns she has come across over the past ten years. Some are obvious and others barely discernible. A discarded straw wrapper, a hole in a T-shirt, a scallion in a bowl of miso soup seemingly everywhere she turns her lens a heart reveals itself.
A very personal collection of images, many of them accompanied by brief captions that reflect on beauty in the everyday, Finding it in Everything is a delightful book from the beloved actress and director, who now adds photographer to her list of credentials.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought 2 copies of this and gave one to a friend who takes nature photos. We both loved the book and the interesting pictures. FInding heart shapes in simple everyday things. Several people have picked it up from my coffee table and read thru it. I had seen Drew Barrymore on a show talking about her inspiration for this book and was anxious to get it and see the photos (which she took herself). I highly recommend this book, not just for photographers but for the joy of seeing hearts and love in simple objects.
