Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Book of Conversations came to life because the art of conversation is not what it once was. The book is a collection of questions, each question is a conversation starter. 120 artists, graphic designers, creative directors, art directors, photographers, illustrators and animators were approached and were each given a question. Their task was to provoke this question with an image.
