The act of creating art, in all its forms, offers us a path to our souls. But the path can be confusing, and getting lost along the way is inevitable. However, maybe that’s the point.

In The Trickster’s Hat, bestselling author of the Griffin & Sabine cycle Nick Bantock invites you to lose yourself in order to become a better creator. Inspired by Nick's popular and mischievous workshops, the book's forty-nine perceptive exercises will encourage you to forget your destination while you meander through the wondrous world that awaits you in the periphery of your mind's eye.

If you’re willing to be lead hither and thither down unlikely paths by a fellow of dubious reputation, if you’re prepared to keep a sense of humor and not be phased when he plucks the unexpected out of a mischief-stuffed hat, if you’re ready to zigzag, detour, and wander in search of a better understanding of your artistic core, then, let the Trickster be your guide.

Editorial Reviews

"The Trickster's Hat: A Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity comes from the author of the Griffin and Sabine trilogy and focuses on how to become a better creator. It uses his popular, whimsical workshops to provide nearly fifty perception exercises to encourage readers to tap their creative juices, and it advocates mischief, out-of-the-box thinking, and a sense of play adults rarely get to enjoy. The result is a recommendation for a very wide audience, from arts students and those who would apply more creative perspective to business to readers interested in the kinds of play that lead to better inspiration. Very highly recommended: whimsical, colorful and bright!" –California Bookwatch
