We Are All Perfectly Imperfect

Derek R. King Author Interview

Honey: Words to Heal & Mend is a captivating book filled with healing messages and images. What was the inspiration for creating this book?

That’s an interesting question. Julie shared with me the philosophy of Wabi Sabi along with the artform of Kintsugi and a number of her Instagram posts inspired by this. I was so taken by Julie’s love for those things I was inspired to write my poem, Kintsugi, which is published on Julie’s website.

The artwork that was chosen for this book is compelling and soothing. What was the process like choosing the images and lines that were included?

We always create based on our intuition, what feels right, and we knew we wanted gold to reflect the art of Kintsugi. However, Kintsugi is about fixing material things and we’ve taken that concept along with our inspirational quotes about healing and mending and applied Kintsugi to the human soul.

What is one thing you would like readers to take away from experiencing this book?

That we are whole, we are all perfectly imperfect.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
