The exact size and shape of a mobile phone, Phone Book takes the screen out of screen-time and brings distraction activities firmly into the analogue realm. Draw your best and worst selfie, copy out the funniest text exchange you’ve ever had, design your favourite game, do a faceswap with a cat, write out your life philosophies in 140 characters, and invent some new apps to suit your lifestyle.
With a sheet of emoji stickers to colour and complete, this is a gorgeous activity book that is sure to get your creative juices flowing, and bring a smile to the most hardened of screen-addicts.
