Missed Connections


Missed Connections by Sarah Blackall

"Our poor hearts are delicate little things, consumed, more often than not, by hope. Proof lies in Craigslist Missed Connections pages – digital message boards heaving with missed opportunity and consequential longing. New York-based illustrator Sarah Blackall has spent the last few years delicately rendering these fleeting love stories in Chinese ink and watercolour, and the results now exist in book form – proof that love, or at least the hope it provides, still exists."
