Publisher’s Description: 

A stunning and timely creative call-to-arms combining four extraordinary written pieces by Neil Gaiman illustrated with the striking four-color artwork of Chris Riddell.

The world always seems brighter when youve just made something that wasnt there before.Neil Gaiman

Drawn from Gaimans trove of published speeches, poems, and creative manifestos, Art Matters is an embodiment of this remarkable multi-media artists visionan exploration of how reading, imagining, and creating can transform the world and our lives.

Art Matters bring together four of Gaimans most beloved writings on creativity and artistry:

  • Credo, his remarkably concise and relevant manifesto on free expression, first delivered in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shootings
  • Make Good Art, his famous 2012 commencement address delivered at the Philadelphia University of the Arts
  • Making a Chair, a poem about the joys of creating something, even when words wont come
  • On Libraries, an impassioned argument for libraries that illuminates their importance to our future and celebrates how they foster readers and daydreamers

Featuring original illustrations by Gaimans longtime illustrator, Chris Riddell, Art Matters is a stirring testament to the freedom of ideas that inspires us to make art in the face of adversity, and dares us to choose to be bold.
