'Woody Guthrie's New Years Rulins' illustrated book

Finally after what seems like a month of staring at the soulless hideous void that is InDesign my first ever book is printed and available to buy!  Well I say my book - it's mostly the brilliant words of Woody Guthrie accompanied by my illustrations - but you know I'm pretty excited about it.

'At the end of 1941 folk musician Woody Guthrie wrote thirty three inspiring rulins (resolutions) for the following year. They still stand-up as a an excellent set of ideals to try and live by. In an attempt to motivate myself in 2013 I decided to draw one of Woody's rulins every day during January.

This book compiles all of the rulins and illustrations. Rulins include;
'Work More and Better'
'Take Bath'
'Eat Good - Fruit, Vegetables, Milk'
'Drink Scant - if any'
'Wear Clean Clothes - Look Good'
'Learn People Better'
'Stay Glad'
'Dream Good'
'Save Dough'
'Dance Better'
'Love Everybody'
'Make Up Your Mind'

The book is seventy pages and measures 210mm x 148mm (A5). The cover is 300gsm full colour on the outside with a gloss laminate to protect it. The paper inside is 120gsm white matt printed all in black and white (high quality) throughout.'

I'll even draw Woody in your copy (or on an accompanying photo if you prefer) if you add a note to your order requesting one.
