The Trickster's Hat: A Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity by Nick Bantock
The Trickster's Hat: A Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity

Diane Ostdiek, October 22, 2014

The greatest trick in this hat is that you will have such a great time exploring the delightful ways to set your creative self free, like the rabbit that jumps from a hat. No heavy rules or confining techniques, just unabated fun and ways to get your juices of creativity blooming like the magician's flowers. Bonuses are illustrations and Nick Bantock's sense of humor that are so delightful and energizing. The book features exercises that will help kick start your creativity and maybe lead to a piece of art you hadn't thought you could make. Delightful from start to finish even if you only read it and don't even try the exercises, it will start you imagining things that are fun and outside the box.

Reamde by Neal Stephenson

I usually shy away from books so big they break my nose if I fall asleep while reading, however, this book was a huge (pun intended) exception. No chance of falling asleep, it was that good and kept moving along at a wonderful pace. Stephenson is a master storyteller, wonderful book and I am now energized to tackle his Baroque trilogy.
