Art Matters Reviews
This is so good. Of course, I knew it would be. I even bought it for my brother for his birthday before I even read it. It's Gaimain talking about art, libraries, literacy, and life. And it's great. Read it. Or don't - but make some good art.

The words of Neil Gaiman.
The art of Chris Riddell.
I needed this. Also Chris Riddell could stab me with a pencil and I'd thank him.
It has been established the world over (if not, then it should be) that Neil Gaiman is one of the most prolific writers that we have, and we must never forget that. In fact, we must cherish what we have every single day and celebrate him by reading more of him, but obviously, day after day.
Art Matters is a collection of his short essays (all previously published individually and collectively in The View from the Cheap Seats) about art, reading, libraries, and why all of it is so important even ...more

(from the blurp)
Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell have teamed up a number of times before and make a great team. Both wholly embrace enthusiastic fans, fan art, any art, as well as charities. Therefore, they created this little book in which Chris Riddell illustrates speeches, poems, manifestos and comments by Neil Gaiman about the i ...more
