Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
Insights and inspiration for anyone who makes art (or anything else) from someone who's been there (and kind of still is). Handwritten and heartfelt, this pocket-sized book by designer Adam J. Kurtz offers wisdom and empathy from one working artist to others, with perforated pages to share or display. Deceptively simple, this full-color book will be a touchstone for writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone else working to harness their passion for a more creative life.
Recommended for creatives, makers, artists, and writers of all kinds, whether you're a professional, hobbyist, still figuring it out, or somewhere in between.
