Blog Tour: Real by Shelley Malcolm

Real by Shelley Malcolm is a beautiful book that would be the perfect addition to any coffee table. Each picture features the hands of a person and their story is told on the adjacent page. The pictures are gorgeous and each one is so unique . . . just like the people they represent. I felt like the stories in this collection represented the makeup of the United States so well. Different backgrounds, all walks of life. A stunning collection for sure.

Plus, proceeds from the sale of this beautiful book go to several charities.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my fair and honest review.


You can purchase the book here or purchase notecards that feature some of the same stories here.
