    The answer is not 42 after all. The answer to life, the universe and everything is: MAKE GOOD ART. Which of course may well be what Douglas Adams did, hitchhiking his way through the universe in a bombastic show of creative power. So 42 and "MAKE GOOD ART" could be seen as synon...

    "Make good art. I?m serious." This is a collection of four essays, each forceful and energetic, that directly address why it is so important to read and write and, more importantly, they impress upon you why children should be doing it too. This is not new material but has ...

    Oh my goodness, I l?ve this book! I read it on the work commute home and am SO impressed with it. One of those books that makes you believe that good things can happen. Imagine a world devoid of beauty. Without colour. No artworks to adorn walls or office desks. No words of wis...

    Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell have created a manifesto for readers, librarians and content creators. This little book celebrates everything having to do with reading, freedom of information and ideas, and how to start creating the life of your dreams, even if you don't know where to st...

    "Be bold. Be rebellious. Choose Art. It matters.? To many, this tiny book is going to seem very expensive for what it is. I can understand that. On the other hand, I totally buy what Gaiman and Riddell proposed to do, defend the Arts and Freedom of Speech in this crazy world of ou...

    A very quick read (I just read this in work, don't tell anyone) featuring some of Neil Gaiman's wisest words paired with Chris Riddell's fantastic illustrations. Neil's advice basically boils down to 'do the thing that only you can do, and do it well' and it's a wonderful read. Buy one...

    Gaiman says, "Make Good Art. I'm serious." I say, "Read more Gaiman. I'm serious." . . This is a cute little book with Neil Gaiman's advice on reading, writing, following your dreams, importance of libraries and librarians, why kids should read, and respecting art, and the illustra...

    I've still not really enjoyed anything by Neil Gaiman, and I still feel bad about that, because everyone who's anything like me regards Gaiman as one of the literary greats of our time, maybe even of all time. I feel like someday I'll connect with something by Gaiman; I really want to,...

    The answer is not 42 after all. The answer to life, the universe and everything is: MAKE GOOD ART. Which of course may well be what Douglas Adams did, hitchhiking his way through the universe in a bombastic show of creative power. So 42 and "MAKE GOOD ART" could be seen as synon...
