Steal Like an Artist

I could be biased because Austin Kleon used a photo of one of our shirts in his book, Steal Like an Artist. (It was the Here to Make Friends tee.) But regardless of inclusion, this is an excellent guide to thinking about creativity in your life, no matter which stage.

I believe everyone has the ability to be an artist, and Austin provides simple steps to get started, or get inspired to dive back in if you’re stuck.

Over the years he’s expanded these notions into a trilogy, and each mini-volume is chock full of the good stuff. When I started to really think about the books that will always be close at hand? These three books have a spot on my shelf, until I give them away, which is often. Then I restock.
