I read Sophie Blackall's blog and I really like her M.C.-inspired art, so I was so super thrilled to get this book. Unfortunately there's not much beyond what's on the blog, so if you have already read that, this will be a nice trip down memory lane but not much more. If you've never read the blog, the art is very sweet, and I love the idea of someone creating excellent illustrations from the sort of "interrupted" story of missed connections. Blackall picks some of the most charming and inspiring missed connections to illustrate. I just wish I hadn't already seen it all previously. In the world of blog-to-books, this is one of the more disappointing translations.

also, does anyone else think about what a weird phenomenon Missed Connections are, and how strange it is that they can inspire art? I mean, missed connections blew up in like 2000. That's so weird.
