About the Book
What is unCOMMON:Stories?
unCOMMON:Stories is a celebration of people. It's just another way of breaking the ice: "Hi, we're writing a book about you. What's your name?" It's a collection of photos of (un)common smiles, grins, and faces. It's a comic book, one comic per person, hundreds of panels about them. It's a way for us to express ourselves in the most natural way we know.
It's pages and pages of people.
Why did we do this?
Because the best thing in the world is getting to know new people, it doesn't matter how. We could even say: the weirder the first meeting, the better. Because the best thing about people is their story, their stories. Because every single person's got a story to tell. That's why we chose not only friends to include in our book, but also people that we were meeting for the first time. Because sometimes people need a reason to get their stories out. Because you have to tell your stories in order to let them crystallize and to enable people share them with the world. Because sometimes you realize what has happened to you only when you talk about it. Because stories get real when we have a human face to associate with them. Because we want to experiment and get reasons to do better comics, and better photos.
Because being able to unite our interest in stories with our natural way to express ourselves it's the freaking best thing that exists in the world.
