If Leonardo da Vinci was right when he said, “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen,” then Sam Giuliano and Haley Jakobson’s fiery new anthology, Write Like Prayers, covers both fronts of that emotional spectrum. Giuliano, an alumna of Academy of Art University’s School of Illustration, is responsible for the book’s beautiful, muted artwork.
“As young women in our respective industries, we sought the opportunity to develop our own narrative and cultivate a creative work that embodied the female millennial voice,” Giuliano explained. “Combining storytelling illustration with raw, unfiltered poetry, Write Like Prayers is a bedtime story for your twenties.”
