Obsessive Consumption


This post probably is more interesting for the European and Asian Pacific readers than it is for you US readers…because many of the big blogs already wrote a bit about Obsessive Consumption by Kate Bingaman-Burt, in which you will find a selection of three years of Kate's delightful ink drawings of everyday items and purchases.


Eversince I received the book it's been laying on our kitchen table and while drinking a coffee I scroll through the book and am constantly happily surprised by the new illustration that catches my eye…  a great book, that makes you THINK!

    What a lovely and interesting book! How I wish can buy one! This can be a unique coffee table book. This is something that suits a contemporary home.

    I was lucky enough to see an exhibit of the artwork from this book in Portland, Oregon. The show was beautifully composed and it was amusing to flip through the drawings to see what familiar things Kate also spent money on!

    There is no exact definition of the word happiness. Happy people are happy for all sorts of reasons. The key is not wealth or physical well-being, since we find beggars, invalids and so-called failures, who are extremely happy.
