What kind of world would you like to inhabit?

To imagine something different, better, or more interesting is to push the existing world into a state of change. Some of the greatest revolutionary acts of our time came to be because someone had the courage to imagine something new.

In The Imaginary World of…, Keri Smith asks readers to imagine something new: a unique world of their own making.

Readers start by creating a list of everything to which theyre drawn: things they love and collect, colors, shapes, ideas, people, and creatures that fascinate them. The items in the list will become the building blocks for their imaginary worlds, used to create texture and establish a foundation for the new place theyll begin to inhabit. Readers will then be prompted to think about landscape, place names, maps, currency, residents, logos, foods, histories, and more for their world.

An indispensable guide for artists, dreamers, activists, and kids of all ages, The Imaginary World of… will encourage readers to become revolutionaries of everyday life, chronicling the possibilities in the brave new worlds they envision.

Synopsis:

By nature, art journaling is a private activity. But when Dawn Sokolandrsquo;s first book, 1000 Artist Journal Pages, broke the fourth wall and shared the work of artists all over the United States, it created a ripple of inspiration throughout the art journaling community. In this much-anticipated follow-up, Sokol features more than 1,000 new, captivating pages, this timeandmdash;by popular demandandmdash;from artists across the globe. Lists of techniques and materials used for each page, plus behind-the-scenes interviews, give readers a glimpse inside the minds of new and established artists, making
this a stimulating compilation sure to inspire beginners and seasoned art journalers alike.

Synopsis:

The journey to self-esteem is set in motion by an encounter with something we all have: a good flaw. And acceptance—just saying yes to the presence of a good flaw—is the way to cross into a world where wholeness, realness, and self-expression can be found.

For anyone wanting to prepare for the social-emotional challenges they have to look forward to in school or dealing with the insecurities that arise while finding your way in the world, as well as anyone who cares about young people (parents, educators, mentors, psychologists, social workers, and more), FLAWD, is an energetic guide for seeing flaws as the doorway to something more. With dynamic advice from teens and celebrities around the world, FLAWD presents you with steps for moving to self-acceptance and true authenticity.

This book may seem like a lot of obvious advice and un-original thinking, but the brilliance is in the sum of the parts. The collection of ideas--and the fact that Austin Kleon seemingly has discovered all of this for using in his own practice--gets your mind primed to examine your habits and ways of thinking about making art... and inspires you to actually change the way you approach it.
