Tiny World Terrariums: A Twig Terrariums Party Report from Assistant Editor Wesley Royce

Last Friday night Twig Terrariums had a launch party for their book Tiny World Terrariums: A Step-by-Step Guide to Easily Contained Life. Katy and Michelle are two of the sweetest, and most enthusiastic, people I’ve had the good fortune of working with while here at ABRAMS, and their launch party was so much fun, filled with great food and drinks. When I received the proposal for Tiny World Terrariums last spring I was so excited. We had been on the lookout for a terrarium book for a while; a tip from our sales department let us know that some accounts had been requesting one, and I immediately knew that this was the book we had been looking for. The terrariums at Twig are fun and unique, filled with scenes that open up the tiny worlds and pull people in to take a closer look. In the book, Katy and Michelle take readers through each step of creating a happy, healthy terrarium so even those with a black thumb can keep theirs alive. If you’re feeling especially motivated you might even want to take one of Twig's NYC workshops. Terrariums make great gifts, and honestly thrive on neglect; I’ve had one living in my windowless office for a year and it is still doing fine.
