This book was recommended to me by Austin Kleon who wrote, How to Steal Like an Artist (my October book). I had no idea what I was getting myself in to when I cracked open this book, and was honestly confused because it’s unlike any book I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty “out-there” so I chose to photograph it with my lensbaby which is a selective focus lens that can produce some images that are also pretty “out-there”.
This book is a memoir with illustrations that show the author’s most insecure, dark and uncertain times as an artist. She threads through the storyline really deep questions like: “What is the past made of?” and “What is/Where is your imagination?”.
Every time I turned the page I was pretty much shocked. So, I would say it was a great read because of it’s unpredictability and though it does not fall at the top of my list of business books it would make my top ten list of creative books.
