Giveaway: Adult-ish by Cristina Vanko

It's graduation season again and I love giving new grads books that make them do some creative thinking.  I absolutely love the sound of Adult-ish: Record Your Highs and Lows on the Road to the Real World by Cristina Vanko. How perfect is this book for new graduates?   

There are so many milestones that young adults experience and what better way to record them than with this journal?  Even if you aren't a new grad and you love journaling, you'll appreciate these beautifully illustrated pages. Check out the sample pages below!  Adult-ish asks you to reflect on everything from your first house plant that you didn't kill to the first real meal you make on your own. You gotta love these small victories! 

ABOUT Adult-IsH:

Goodreads says, "My first real job. The first plant I kept alive more than a year.  The first relationship I kept alive more than three months.  In this hand-lettered and illustrated guided journal, you will have a place to record the firsts of becoming an adult. A new twist on baby books, "My Book of Grown-Up Firsts" is a charming and cheeky celebration of what it means to finally be a grown-up (sort of).  From the first time you visited home without bringing dirty laundry to the first time you truly felt comfortable in your own skin, the small victories and meaningful milestones in this quirky, charming, and insightful journal make it a great gift and appealing journal for anyone starting out on the path of adulthood."


"Cristina Vanko is the author of Hand-Lettering for Everyone. A designer and illustrator, her work has been featured in Boing Boing, Design Taxi, Laughing Squid, Mashable, The Daily Mail, and elsewhere. Find her at, and on Instagram @cristinavanko and @100daysofadulting.
