Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the bestselling book to inspire creativity for artists and creatives of all types, Steal Like An Artist! This inspiring guide to creativity in a digital age presents ten transformative principles that will help readers discover their artistic side, embrace influence, and build a more creative life. It’s time to revisit this game-changing manifesto by renowned artist and poet Austin Kleon on how to create original work in a time when nothing seems original, inspired by his viral college commencement speech that racked up over 1.5 million views! It pushes creators of all kinds to start producing (by studying the work of personal heroes and transforming that inspiration into something new, aka “steal like an artist!”)
