    About Hannah's first Book: Contemporary Prayers to * [whatever works]

    In January 2013, the very first printing of this book was made possible by generous friends and strangers who invested in it through kickstarter.  The campaign raised way beyond its original goal, which was to print and share with backers a stunning first edition.   You can see the campaign in its entirety, in perpetuity, on kickstarter, including Hannah's original video.  

    NEWS  :  
    We've sold over 2600 copies and counting, including to over 50 museum shops in 24 states.

    We're well into the second print of the first edition, which arrived in Spring 2015, and looks beautiful.

    Hannah is speaking and holding workshops on the intersection of creative and spiritual practice based on the themes in these books. To hear about upcoming events, sign up for her blog here, or be in touch with Hannah via email hannah -at- hannahburr.com
