    Love love love this!!! Lately I've been a bit quotes obsessed, and I've been wanting to read this one for a while. For anyone who works in a creative environment, or has a fascination for arts in general, this is a must read. There's an intimacy at reading the thoughts made into quotes of famous artists, offering us a glimpse into their process, way of living, every day and even their opinions on art related cliches. Of course there's a bunch of remarkable quotes on this book, but a couple of my Love love love this!!! Lately I've been a bit quotes obsessed, and I've been wanting to read this one for a while.

There's an intimacy at reading the thoughts made into quotes of famous artists, offering us a glimpse into their process, way of living, every day and even their opinions on art related cliches. Of course there's a bunch of remarkable quotes on this book, but a couple of my favorite: · "One must go on working silently, trusting the result to the future" Vicent Van Gogh · "You have to learn to feel confident about the prospect of failing, because it's so inevitable" Andrea Zittel · "Work with ideas, what matters above all is the goal -What you want to achieve, to provoke with a work" Mona Hatoum A wonderful read, I enjoyed every page :D

    Was ok. considering it was a book about art the type setting in the book drove me crazy. It made no sense. The cover was beautiful and wish they just stick to simple and let the content drive. Beings me to the second point. Even if you ignore the poor type setting, The quotes were meh, at best. I'm not really a quote hater or lover. They just didn't feel punchy. Worth a read if it's laying around though. Was ok. considering it was a book about art the type setting in the book drove me crazy. It made no sense.

    This is one of those rare finds I stumped upon while browsing Waterstones and knew I had to purchase it immediately. This books offers various quotes from artists both well known and unknown. I find this book to be very inspirational as it is great for those days where you are feeling low about your creative endeavours. This is a great reminder that all artists have started from the bottom and worked there way up.

    Wonderful collection of quotes, cleverly chosen and from hard to find sources a.k.a. pre-internet books, interviews, essays, etc. Being a Phaidon book, it's also wonderfully laid-out and designed with nice typography and subtle patterns. I look forward to seeing this book on my bookshelf for years to come.

    Uma coleção de citações maravilhosas que sempre trazem inspiração em dias cinzentos. Mantenho sempre por perto, seja na cabeceira da cama, seja na mesa de centro da sala para qualquer pessoa que queira folhear e se deleitar.

    These quotes are from artists and other creatives. Not necessarily all famous, either. The quotes are gathered by topic. An excellent reference if you are looking for inspiration and some wildly different approaches to success, failure, friends, and life.
