101 reasons to make this a christmas present
on 10 November 2011
This is a gem of a little book and very reasonably priced. It is written by someone who is more than just an artist, rather a sage and a philosopher who is also not afraid of sometimes stating the obvious but always with an stimulating twist, quote and original illustration. This is not a "how to" book. It is a reminder of the fundamental truths which underpin the aesthetic world. Big ideas delivered in easily digested bites, you can finish the whole book in about half an hour but it will pay to revisit. It is amusing and serious at the same time - a perfect present for a teenager or student and indeed anyone with an interest in the arts.
