The Habit of Noticing: Using Creativity To Make A Life (and a Living) (Signed)
Darden Smith’s most adventurous, and certainly most personal project to date. The book is full of stories pulled from his life in and out of music, and the people he has met along the way. The collection is a look at where he comes from, what he’s seen and heard as he tried to figure out how to get along in the world, his inspirations and influences, the importance of commitment and endurance in tough times, why you should always be yourself, and the beauty that comes from finding meaning in your work and your life.
Along with the stories, the book is full of Smith’s art and photography. Though he started teaching himself to sketch many years ago, until now he has been hesitant to put them on display. In The Habit of Noticing, the images and stories come together to create a larger perspective and message.
Designed by DJ Stout at Pentagram Design, The Habit of Noticing features a forward by highly acclaimed musician and author Warren Zanes (“Tom Petty”).
