We've all had one of those days: you sleep through the three alarms you've set, you put your shirt on inside out, you're forced to eat M&Ms for lunch because you're too busy to leave the office. Daily Dishonesty is a design and hand-lettering project that documents the little lies we tell ourselves to get through these trying times when we just need a boost and in some cases a pass, to make it to tomorrow. Based on author Lauren Hom's work from the blog of the same title, Daily Dishonesty will feature a colourful collection of nearly 150 lies, beautifully illustrated by Hom. Covering topics from diets to breakups, these gorgeously lettered, funny little mantras are relatable, tongue-in-cheek and beautiful. The book also features four removable postcards.
