That's such a beautiful book! I'm going to look for it when I go to Indigo today! I hope the film comes to Toronto soon, it would be great to do a review of it for my blog!!

Oh wow! Looks awesome. Now if only Toronto was closer to Vancouver... Hah. Doesn't look like there is Toronto screening. I need to get the book though. Looks like some really beautiful work.

First heard about this at The Makers Fair this weekend - didn't know Levine was working on this while touring with her last documentary and book - My wallets empty and I'd love to see the documentary. As an artist and teacher myself I could spread the love and support ;)
