Initiative : Comment un livre illustré m'a aidée à faire face à mon anxiété

le 28 juin 2016

[The Guardian] What follows is a kind of illustrated guide to the everyday experience of living of anxiety. With her delicate sketches and personal observations, LePage seeks to capture our traits and thought patterns, our weaknesses and habits, and lay them bare on the page.

The back cover of the book reads: “Thinly sliced and illustrated emotions are much easier to digest”, and perhaps LePage is onto something. You can find dense academic texts on the wiring of the anxious brain, and instructional tapes on breathing and mindfulness – but the power of LePage’s book lies not just in capturing the psychological condition, but the emotional experience that goes with it. To break down the everyday thoughts and moments of generalised anxiety – to lock them down on a page, to colour them in – somehow makes them feel a little less overwhelming.
