Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eye Opening! In my industrial city being able to make someone stop for a few seconds to notice the things around them is quite important. Artists invite the community in an otherwise closed up society. If you need ideas to help you do that this is the book for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspiring As a graphic design student I am constantly thirsty for inspiration and discovery. This book gives great ideas and helps you produce new ones on your own. It contains exercises long forgotten from kindergarten but still retains strong visual value. Keri Smith is a great artist he website is also very fun to visit.
