exciting news: My Heart Wanders coming to the USA this month…
Posted in my heart wanders, pia's photos April 2nd, 2012 by pia

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing this news: My Heart Wanders will (finally!) (and officially!) be hitting US shores this coming month, and will be distributed by the lovely IPG books. For those of you who have been waiting so patiently to be able to buy the book locally, the wait is over…

If you own a shop in the United States and would like to sell My Heart Wanders in your store, please contact IPG books directly, for order placement you can call (800) 888 4741.

Above are a few sneak peeks at some of the visual spreads you’ll find inside the book. And here is a bit more info about what you’ll discover between the pages…

This book also tells the story of how Romain and I met, it’s a romantic tale that is even more poignant now that our baby girl is in the world. It’s a book that I hope one day she will cherish too…

For more info, you can check it out here and here, and if you would like to see some of the window displays I created in Sydney last year in celebration of the release of the book, please click here.
Exciting times!


PS 7 week update: I love being a mum.

    Pia, Love all your books, photos especially of your little baby girl. Congrats on all your beautiful work and for sharing it with people whom like myself are stay at home Mums, dreaming of all there is. Those moments with your baby, toddlers are only with us once, they change every day and so do we. Embrace – this beautiful life with my babies is what I do. Please tell me what camera do you use to take some of your wonderful pics.
    My heart wandered to your blog/books some how. How lucky am I.

    Such beautiful images! Just makes my heart soar. I will be getting it. A friend recently gave me your Amsterdam Made by Hand book, which I treasure.

    Great news on the book visiting the US! and good to hear that you are enjoying your new role as mum. Your posts are lovely and because they don’t appear as often as in the past, are a little like a surprise in the letter box. Thanks

    Pia, I couldn’t wait for it to be published in N.America and be available to me on Vancouver Island – I ordered one for me and one for a friend from England. They arrived when I was down with a bad flu and I was so grateful to have the time to savour every wonderful page with, as you’ll understand, many cups of tea in locally crafted beautiful cups. You have created a unique treasure of a book with a gorgeous presentation, artful collages, intimate photographs, thick sumptuous pages, your original works… And for me, as a counsellor who listens to may people’s stories, I am especially touched by yours which I feel is a story that many women of all ages need to hear – how to overcome fear, move out into the unknown, and live a beautiful, unique, vulnerable and passion life that is worthy of their heart’s potential!!! And after the experiences you have described I do not think it is by chance the the newest love of your life “wandered” into your life on Valentine’s Day. May all your challenges yield rich and wise victories and all the beauty, optimism and joie de vivre that you express return to your precious self and those you love. Bravo!!!!

    Hi Pia,
    I had this books for month’s already, and although I have been enjoying the images, I was going trough other books and motions, so had not read it yet. Until I saw this post. I picked up your book again and start reading it and didn’t stop. It’s wonderful!! Thank you for sharing your story! And after finishing it I thought, isn’t it amazing that you with your wandering heart and al those little hearts you find on your way, brought Laly to the world on the ‘day of hearts’?!
    Hoping this message finds you well!

    Hi Pia, discovered your book in a shop in the Adeladie Hills where it just shouted out to be picked up, fondled and taken home! I love it! It is a joy that leads the reader on a reflective journey, a feast for the eyes, and the time taken to pour over its contents is a beautiful gift to the reader. Congratulations and my sincerest thanks! Dianne
