Chronicle Books “Great Tumblr Book Search” Submission

Title: Standing in Asia, Looking at Europe, Thinking of New York
Author/Painter: Missy H. Dunaway
Category: Art

Synopsis: I have combined two personal art journals into one book entitled “Standing in Asia, Looking at Europe, Thinking of New York.” This book builds a narrative through painting and poetry to recount two years of solo globe-trotting, giving readers a chance to explore the world through the eyes and heart of a painter.

Eighty paintings guide the reader through a visual journey beginning in 2013 when I moved from New York City to Istanbul alone. Short poems describe a mirroring emotional journey as I leave old relationships, adjust to a new culture, and learn a new language. The book continues into 2014 as I move from Istanbul to Central Turkey, where the cultural divide deepens and the language barrier rises.

“Standing in Asia, Looking at Europe, Thinking of New York” combines female travel writing themes like independence, exploration and alienation with simple poetry and colorful artwork stylistically similar to Maira Kalman’s illustrated book, “The Principles of Uncertainty.” You are invited to view additional pages in this supporting post. Thank you for your time and consideration!
