Synopsis

What advice would your 80-year-old self give you? That's the question social-practice artist Susan O'Malley (1976-2015) asked more than a hundred ordinary people of every age, and from every walk of life. O'Malley collected their responses--words of encouragement, truth, and generosity--and transformed them into the distinctive text-based images gathered in this book. Together, they reveal the wisdom we all hold inside ourselves right now.
