After hand-lettering a book of quotes as a baby shower gift for her friend Joanna Goddard (of the popular lifestyle blog, Cup of Jo), Samantha Hahn was inspired to create an illustrated gift book and companion keepsake journal for other mothers to personalise. Stories for My Child features prompts for capturing the spectacular and quotidian moments of raising a child, along with thoughtfully selected quotes from contemporary and literary sources. Designed with Hahn's ethereal watercolors and chic hand lettering, the journal represents a sophisticated take on the parenting keepsake, and a treasure to pass along when the child grows up. Stories for My Child will have the same trim and a complementary design to Samantha Hahn's quote book (both available Spring '16)--making them a wonderful gift set for Mother's Day or baby showers.
Capturing Brooklyn-based artist Samantha Hahn’s modern sensibility, A Mother Is a Story: A Celebration of Motherhood is a stunning collection of hand-lettered quotes and ethereal illustrations. Rendered in Hahn’s signature watercolors, the book portrays the shared experience of motherhood in all its glorious, messy, sublime beauty. With quotes that range from witty and irreverent to touching and thoughtful, each page presents sentiments and snippets of wisdom that celebrate the spirit of motherhood. Contributions come from literary icons, political activists, lifestyle bloggers, fashion designers, and more. A Mother Is a Story is published in conjunction with Stories for My Child: A Mother’s Memory Journal, a guided journal for capturing all the moments of motherhood, small and spectacular, from pregnancy through your child’s adolescence. Together or separately, they make the perfect gift for Mother’s Day and baby showers.

It is a legacy of genes, behaviors, mannerisms, money, and property. Unless there is some special effort put forth, a lot about Mom is lost upon her death. The purpose of this journal book is for mothers to record their story. It is meant to be a living life gift to their sons and daughters. In this way, mothers can leave a complete legacy, both tangible and intangible, to their children.The journal speaks to the life and times of a mother. It talks about the father of the mother's children. It chats about her pastimes and notable accomplishments. It culminates with Mom's acknowledgements, beliefs, and advice for her children. The journal is styled in a question and answer format. This will help you write down the memories, thoughts, and ideas you wish to share with your children. Please remember, much of what makes up who your children are comes from you, so your story is also their story.
