This beautifully illustrated and joyful tribute celebrates famous friendships (both real and fictional) and proves that there is no relationship more important than friendship.
Our best friends are our soulmates. They understand us when no one else does, lift us up, and bring out the best in us. It’s a relationship based on a bond that can’t always be described, but is always magical.
Billions of Besties shines a light on some of the most engaging, funny, inspiring, and sometimes unexpected sets of friends. In this gorgeous and playfully illustrated volume, authors and besties Peggy and Susie highlight more than 100 besties, both real and fictional, from all walks of life. From the comedic powerhouse of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, to the unexpected camaraderie between RGB and Antonin Scalia, the glamourous friendship between Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, or the fictional ride-or-die bond between Thelma and Louise, this book is a timeless salute to friendship in all its forms.
Uplifting and charming, Billions of Besties celebrates the power and vitality of friendship—from bromances to work wives—reminding us that when we have each other’s backs, we have the power to change the world.
Peggy Panosh is an artist in Brooklyn, New York. While on creative hiatus from her prospering entertainment marketing career—working for some truly phenomenal people including Oprah—her love for illustrating was ignited. Peggy infuses a lot of heart in her work. In fact, if you look very closely at her drawings, you will find a teeny little heart in each one. Peggy’s illustrations have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Rosewood Hotels + Resorts and has been a featured artist at Ludlow (Soho) House-New York. You can see more of her work at PeggyPanosh.com and on Instagram @PeggyPanosh.
Susie Arons is a strategic communications advisor, working with some of the most recognized names in entertainment, lifestyle, and media. While honing her writing skills writing billions of messages throughout her 30+ year career, some people might say she has been a professional bestie to some of the besties in the business, including Netflix, HBO, Color Force, Marlo Thomas, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, A24, Refinery29, The Hunger Games, Amazon Studios, BMW, Starz, AMC Networks, Apple Music, Jimmy Iovine, Sundance TV, Jonah Hill, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Inspired every day by her colleagues at 42 West, or poolside with her treasured circle of friends and family, Susie learned early to lead with heart, be smart, and always keep the joy.
