    Live Now and How Books Team Up

    We've recently teamed up with HOW books on a book publishing deal. The book will roughly consist of 100, perforated pages that can be easily torn out and hung up or given away to spread smiles. Estimated arrival is April 2011, available through all major offline and online booksellers including distribution in America, Europe, Australia & Canada.

    Megan Lane Patrick, HOW Books acquisitions editor, discovered Smith’s Live Now project when she was evaluating websites for’s monthly Top 10 Sites for Designers feature. When she contacted him about featuring his site, they agreed the project might make a good book. “The typographic illustrations of Live Now are inspirational in more than one way. They’ll certainly appeal to designers, but also to anyone who appreciates contemporary, hand-drawn type and thoughtful messages of hope.”

    HOW Books is part of a family of products and events, including HOW magazine and the HOW Design Conference, that help graphic designers be more creative and profitable.
