A great book for anyone who creates or wants to (from writers, crafters, painters, etc.); with a step-by-step approach using exercises that gently instruct readers to push their boundaries identifying strengths and weaknesses and encouraging readers to get their hands dirty, working though creative blocks, procrastination and finally sharing one's work. There are also plenty of tips and interviews with other creative types like Faythe Levine (Handmade Nation, The Sign Painter) and Kate Bingaman Burt to name a few, alongside stories from Werker's life which round out this inspirational guide illustrated by Kate Bingaman Burt.
A great book to give to anyone who inspires to make.
