“In an age of clamoring haste and three-second sound bites, Giving Voice arrives like the fall of cool rain in the desert…a sweet and gentle relief. It’s a book of elegant proportion, slow sweeping movement and beautiful composition…”
– from the introduction by multi-best-selling creator of the Griffin & Sabine trilogies, Nick Bantock

Praise for Giving Voice: “Remarkable Work”
I love Giving Voice. This remarkable, inspiring and unique book is a magical journey unlike any other and is beautifully done. Rich colors and patterns metamorphise into stunnning images created by reknown artist Victoria Lansford. Her words dance and flow across the pages filled with insightful thoughts and expressions. The music is contemplative, sophistocated and lovely. I would highly recommend this book as a gift to others or for one’s self.

Praise for Giving Voice: “Amazing”
Giving Voice is what ‘multimedia’ is supposed to be! Visual art, music, and spoken word brought together in a complementary manner. Whether you're checking out a few pages to get a quick pick-me-up of pen, ink, and piano, or parking yourself in one spot to lose yourself in the gestalt, or doing something in between, you’ll find something new inside to keep coming back to.

“It’s beyond beautiful…”
No painting, song, or sculpture had ever moved me like your art did. It's beyond beautiful, I cannot describe my feelings. Each piece is so organic, they look alive. Each one left me with different feelings, mostly: wonder, amazement, happiness, and curiosity. Some even a soft anger or loss. But each one left me emotionally rolled. You're work is....life changing. I've finally heard the thundering beacon of what I want for my future. And that is to someday be as an amazing of an artist as you.
I thank you so much for what you do.
