Description

A creative call to arms from the mind of Neil Gaiman, combining his extraordinary words with deft and striking illustrations by Chris Riddell. Art Matters will inspire its readers to seize the day in the name of art.

'Like a bedtime story for the rest of your life, this is a book to live by. At its core, it's about freeing ideas, shedding fear of failure, and learning that "things can be different". ' - Institute of Imagination

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.

Review quote

Neil Gaiman was born to write. I cannot imagine that a day goes by without his putting one word after another in the service of telling a story, communicating an idea, sparking a new thought in a happy reader

Neil Gaiman shows that while we might come to his writing for gods and monsters, actually all human life is here - Independent on THE VIEW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS

Chris Riddell is an amazing artist
