One of the greatest myths surrounding creativity is that you have to be original. Austin Kleon says we just have to be inspired. In Kleon’s New York Times–bestselling 2012 book Steal Like an Artist, he advises aspiring artists to steal from their influences, get started before knowing who they are, and create what they want to read themselves. A decade later, this message is as powerful as ever. In this 10th anniversary edition, Kleon supplements his message with an explanation of why “stealing” doesn’t mean what most people think it does and offers a personal perspective on his book’s overarching theme of finding the creativity around and within you.Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist (10th Anniversary Gift Edition)
