We're bombarded everyday with messages telling us to be bigger, to be better, to give 100%, to achieve perfection, to be thinner and taller and hotter and faster and smarter. But in the flurry of photoshop and filters and statistics and motivational quotes we've forgotten that some of the world's most famous successes in fact started as failures, and that there is beauty and happiness and life in the imperfections that make us who we are.

From the very first time you pick this book up (and realise the cover is purposely on backwards!) you're challenged to reevaluate the way you measure success and view failure, and see your life and the world. Kessels, a creative of some repute, lays out the law and tells it like it is. Fail. Cry. Fall. Try. Change. Grow. Think outside the box. Smash the box. Burn the box.


  • Celebrates mistakes and shows how they can enrich the creative process
  • Part photobook / part guide to loosening the f**k up
  • Challenges you to take the fear out of failure and encourages experimentation


  • Format: Paperback
  • Size: 18 x 12 cms
