& Illustrated by
The Book: The Art of Being a Dad is a highly illustrated and colorfully creative collaboration between a dad and his two small kids. It is also one man's journey as he navigates the colliding worlds of babies and career, co-parenting and being a man, the boundaries and freedom, and the awe, beauty, and exhaustion of Being a Dad.
Women seem to be instinctual when it comes to taking care of babies, but a man has to be creative when it comes to hanging out with his little kids. With no breasts to use as ammo he must immediately start to think on his feet, trying one thing and then another… “Oh look what’s over here,” or “I wonder where that salamander is today?,” and sooner than later dad and kid settle in and find their way to being connected again, creating a unique bond that will last a life time.
Mark Wagner is unique, not because he is has equally helped in raising two small kids, but because he is a freelance artist and when it was his time to be a dad he was curious, observant, jotted down notes and insights, took photographs, created drawings, and made art with his kids.
120 Pages, Full Color, hard & soft cover, 7 x 7 in.
