About

Eunoia & You - An indulgent exploration of the self

£1,323

56

Eunoia (yoo ‘noy uh) means beautiful thinking and to be well of mind.

Eunoia & You, is a collection of questions and mindful activities to help anyone work towards their own state of eunoia through the simple act of getting to know yourself.

This colourful and engaging book has been created to be insightful without being emotionally intrusive, to promote mindfulness by allowing a break from ‘adulting’ and to help the reader see themselves (and others) in a fresh light.

Eunoia & You’s purpose is to help you feel balanced, mentally. It’s a space to explore and have fun with getting to know who you are. The activities are inclusive and great to share with friends as well!

Eunoia & You will be 60 pages long, recycled paperback and 16.8cm x 25.7cm (about US comic book size).

The Wee One is a miniature version of the main book, Eunoia & You. This little 28 page booklet came along first, to better test the material and ensure the idea was worth pursuing!

I’m making The Wee One available as part of this campaign as a small affordable version and as a way of easing yourself or a friend into finding your own eunoia. It’s A5 and small enough to be travel size too!

I’m Lady Gabe. I am a freelance Designer & Illustrator based in the gorgeous Cotswold town of Cheltenham, in the UK.

I love colour, cuteness and coaching others. Up until now, I’ve been illustrating for businesses as a freelancer, as well as selling my greetings cards, prints, jewellery etc. at shows and conventions all across the UK.

The book came to life through my own experiences with poor mental health, with my struggles as well as many of the people close to me.

I have a strong drive to help and build others. Therefore, after collecting methods to heal some of my own mental trauma, I started to share these questions and exercises with friends in similar states with some really positive results.

I’m not perfect at it and I am by no means an expert in the mental health field. So please know that this book isn’t about healing acute mental trauma, it is more of a space to take a short break from life and all of its responsibilities.

Essentially, it’s a bit of fun that can in turn really help brighten your day! Even if only for 5 minutes, it’s time spent on yourself and I feel that is invaluable.

Crowdfunding is all about what we can give you, as thanks for helping us creators build on our dream! Read on to get an idea of what is included in the reward tiers, make sure to read through all the options to pick the best one for you!

Every single penny helps us towards our goal!

As a thank you for adding to our tip jar, we will email you with 3 Digital Colouring Pages to find your own state of eunoia.

Simply print off and enjoy!

Risks and challenges

It’s a risky business putting yourself out there, that’s for sure! But screw it, this is great fun!

This may be my first Kickstarter but I’ve got great trust in my printers and suppliers. The first run of The Wee One was as promotional material to see how the idea for Eunoia & You was received by the public and to test the quality, colour and visual impact of the product.

I have carefully estimated the dates for shipping, as well as the time needed to print and package the book, all being well the products will be shipped to arrive in time for Christmas 2018.

Backers will be updated frequently with any progress, and I’ll ensure to let you know of anything that may arise to prevent the books from landing through your front door in time to enjoy over the festive break.
