St. John is an extremely small community as many of you may know. The majority of the people living here know each other, or at least know of each other. When someone is in need, the community rallies together and helps. It’s a beautiful thing.

Last night, we received a message from Janet Simonsen. She said she and her husband Steve, one of the island’s incredible photographers, are in the final stages of completing their home that was leveled during Hurricane Irma. The rebuild has been long, and it has been costly. The Simonsens are close to being able to move home, but not close enough.

Janet mentioned to me that they have copies of their beautiful coffee table book, Living Art, available for sale. One hundred percent of the proceeds of this book, Janet told me, will be used to complete their home, allowing them to go home for the first time since September 2017. Now this is where the community love comes in.

I love St. John, as I know many of you do. If you are looking to have a piece of the island in your home, please consider purchasing this book. Living Art is a beautiful hardcover book that features 198 pages of images taken here on St. John. Here is its cover:

Living Art costs $78.50. Shipping is included in the price. All copies will be signed by Steve Simonsen. Customers will receive a small discount when buying multiple books. You can purchase this book by visiting http://stevesimonsen.net/Home/Books.html

I have seen this book in person, and I can tell you that it is beautiful. Living Art would make a great addition to any St. John-lover’s home. And what’s better than helping a family move home. Not much in my book.

    Ordered! Happy to do our part to help these fine folks back to their home. What a great book to page through on some of those long winter days in between visits to St. John!
