"This isn't one of those mediocre books of gooey inspirational quotes. This is a beautiful, thoroughly researched collection of real words from real artists. Anyone struggling with their creative life will find comfort and guidance here - I plan to keep it on my shelf and flip to a random page when I'm stuck." —Austin Kleon, New York Times bestselling author of Steal Like An Artist.
