A beautiful, visually-engaging coffee table book that takes the viewer into the intimate moments of each of the authors’ mornings over the course of a year in A Year of Mornings. Maria Alexandra Vettese (MAV) and Stephanie Congdon Barnes (SCB) both live in Portland – that is, one lives in Portland, Maine (MAV) and the other lives in Portland, Oregon (SCB). With similar appreciations and aesthetics, MAV and SCB jointly update their blog 3191 Miles Apart, allowing us peeks into their lives in the same city on opposite coasts. A Year of Mornings is a physical representation of their photo-log of their lives and the world around them.
A Year of Mornings is an unusual addition to add to my books read, simply by the virtue that one does not read this book but view and absorb the images. SCB and MAV do an excellent job of taking us on the visual journey of their lives over the year that is documented.
