A revised edition of Gardner’s classic on the development of creativity. Illustrated throughout with children’s art, this book is a systematic examination of the relation between youthful participation in the arts and the ultimate craftsmanship attained by gifted artists.
"The presentation is scholarly, and though not pedantic, it calls for considerable application," said LJ's reviewer of this look at the psychology of the artistic process. "Artists, psychologists, and teachers will find it most interesting and worthwhile" (LJ 1/15/74).
