Art Matters




3 votes


Be bold. Be rebellious. Choose art. It matters.

Neil Gaiman once said that 'the world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before'. This little book is the embodiment of that vision. Drawn together from speeches, poems and creative manifestos, Art Matters explores how reading, imagining and creating can change the world, and will be inspirational to young and old.

Art Matters bring together four of Gaiman’s most beloved writings on creativity and artistry:

“Credo,” his manifesto on free expression, first delivered in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shootings

“Make Good Art,” his 2012 commencement address delivered at the Philadelphia University of the Arts

“Making a Chair,” a poem about the joys of creating something, even when words won’t come

“On Libraries,” an impassioned argument for libraries that illuminates their importance to our future and celebrates how they foster readers and daydreamers

Featuring original illustrations by Gaiman’s longtime illustrator, Chris Riddell, Art Matters is a stirring testament to the freedom of ideas that inspires us to make art in the face of adversity, and dares us to choose to be bold.

    Pas de texte inédit, mais il est très pertinent et agréable d’avoir réunis ceux-ci en un seul petit ouvrage. Des textes simples qui défendent l’art, la lecture, la création et font un bien fou. À garder à portée de main et à relire dans les phases de doute, quand on a l’impression de ne rien faire de beau ou d’utile. « If you’re making mistakes, it means you’re out there doing something. »
