A New York Times Best-seller
Imported from USA
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 upstate 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, col- lect ideas, and remix and
re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interests 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.
