Is This Real Life? Sticker Patch + Stickers (Set of 3)
This patch and sticker pack is an exclusive collab between Strange Ways and author Chris Stedman, inspired by his new book IRL, which investigates what it means to be “real” in the digital age.
BIRD STICKER PATCH: Depicts an experience most of us have had at one point or another (especially in 2020)—that moment when, scrolling through Instagram or Twitter, you ask yourself: “Is any of this real?”
RABBIT STICKER: A modern update to the classic children's story The Velveteen Rabbit, which Chris reflects on throughout IRL (including in the last chapter, titled “The Velveteen Habit”). The Velveteen Rabbit is about a toy rabbit who wants to become real. In this take on the story, the rabbit is logging on to look for answers in its search for realness.
ANXIETWEETS STICKER: The title of one of the book's chapters, “Anxietweets,” is deeply relatable to anyone who has ever felt their anxiety rise as they find themselves unable to tear away from their timeline—even when it's making them feel more anxious (AKA doomscrolling).
