The Shape of Spilled Milk is a book of stories and photographs created by Matt Austin.
Covering a variety of moments–from reflections on the intimacy of romantic mornings, internet dream girls, and two-hour haircuts, encounters with birds trapped in airports and elevator handshakes with The President, to ideas of future eulogies and how Saturdays can feel in Pittsburgh–this book carries the theme of trying to be better through the process of remembering the old you(s) and old me(s).
