JULY’S BOOK IS: “Steal Like An Artist:

10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative”

SUMMARY:

You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side.

When Mr. Kleon was asked to address college students in update New York, he shaped his speech around the ten things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create Steal Like An Artist, the book. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. And filled with new truths about creativity: Nothing is original, so embrace influence, collect ideas and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interest wherever they take you. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring – the creative you will need to make room to be wild and daring in your imagination.
