Have you ever poured out a bowl of your favorite breakfast cereal and looked down to see one of the flakes looks just like Abraham Lincoln? Ever had a Saturday at the farmers market when your four-year-old picks up a particularly ample tomato and proclaims, “Mama! It’s a butt!” Seeing familiar shapes in unfamiliar places is always fun. Drew Barrymore agrees.
The movie star and makeup maven has been documenting, through photography, every moment she has found a heart shape in an unexpected place. Drew explains, “I have always loved hearts. The way that one continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing — it conveys love. Hearts are my beacons. I love them man-made and natural, young and old. Whenever and wherever I see the heart shape, a smile spreads across my face. The heart has an unbeatable romance when you discover one where you least expect it.”
These heart photographs are going to be turned into a book. Little Brown and Company, the same publishing company that brought us Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and some of Emily Dickinson’s poetry, will be publishing Find it in Everything by Drew on January 14th of next year. You can currently pre-order the book now for $14.41.
From the publishers: “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.”
Drew has not only found hearts and a place to publish them, but she has also found Twitter. Earlier this week she sent out her first tweet from the handle @DrewBarrymore, “Late to the party, but happy to be here! 140 characters should keep me from rambling… someone told me it doesn’t all have to fit in 1 tweet”
She then immediately began promoting a Twitter chat, a magazine spread, and her book announcement. Seems like she’s got this Twitter game down!
What is the weirdest shape you have ever found in a food item?
Did you take a photo of it?
