Here's the spiel:
Bestselling creator of Subversive Cross Stitch Julie Jackson brings her unique brand of snark to the “Subversive Cross Stitch Coloring and Activity book” (for grown-ups only.) Feeling overloaded and underwhelmed? Try any of these 40 fun activities instead of freaking out. Practice mindlessness while you color one of Julie’s trademark cross-stitch designs as re-interpreted by subversive illustrator Chris Piascik. Or try one of the activities guaranteed to improve even the worst mood, such as the Flying Fuck paper airplane or the handy folded paper Decision-Maker Cube. If it’s kindness that gets you through the day, make an ‘Everyday Valentine for someone who deserves it.
This book gives you permission to cut loose. This is not a book you put on the shelf and leave in perfect condition; it’s meant to be wildly interactive. So color outside the lines, cut parts out, fold, throw things—tear it up and make it your own! No one else brings the same frustrations and creative angle to it that you do. Consider it your therapy project and an escape from the pressures of the day.
Most importantly, SHARE. Share the results with co-workers by adding your boss’ face to a finger puppet. Unleash your inner futurist with the magic cat fortune-teller. Or color and tear out one of the illustrated phrases to hang at your desk and remind you to smile now and then.
Go ahead and turn your world upside down for a while. Release the therapeutic value of play and be the bad kid in class you always wanted to be. Color on the walls! There are no consequences here.
Embrace the delicious thrill of so-called “bad” words (no one is shocked anymore.) By coloring them in, you take away their power. And really, fuck anyone who can’t take a joke.
Above all, have fun! Tear it up!
