Jennifer Yoffy’s Favorite Book from 2021

Blue Violet by Cig Harvey.   Published by The Monacelli Press.

Blue Violet is bold and lush and an absolute sensory immersion. Cig Harvey has extended her vibrant, emotive photographs to include prose and recipes and playlists that swallow you whole and deliver you into her radiant sphere. I display the book on my shelf with the back facing out, so the directive to EAT FLOWERS will remind me to soak up every drop of life. This is more than a book, it’s a manifesto on how to move through the world, headlong with wide eyes and an open heart.

Jennifer Yoffy is a publisher and arts advocate based in Atlanta, Georgia.
