Overview

The act of creating art, in all its forms, offers us a path to our souls. But the path can be confusing, and getting lost along the way is inevitable. However, maybe that’s the point.

In The Trickster’s Hat, bestselling author of the Griffin & Sabine cycle Nick Bantock invites you to lose yourself in order to become a better creator. Inspired by Nick's popular and mischievous workshops, the book's forty-nine perceptive exercises will encourage you to forget your destination while you meander through the wondrous world that awaits you in the periphery of your mind's eye.

If you’re willing to be lead hither and thither down unlikely paths by a fellow of dubious reputation, if you’re prepared to keep a sense of humor and not be phased when he plucks the unexpected out of a mischief-stuffed hat, if you’re ready to zigzag, detour, and wander in search of a better understanding of your artistic core, then, let the Trickster be your guide.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Nick Bantock's first book in seven years deserves to be savored by all those who value creativity. His track record of interweaving art and words is, after all, impeccable: Eleven of his previous books have earned bestseller list niches, including three simultaneously (!) on the New York Times top ten: Griffin & Sabine, Sabine's Notebook, and The Golden Mean. The Trickster's Hat takes you behind the magic curtain, serving up no fewer than forty-nine devious, mischievous exercises to activate your inner artist.

    I'm a huge fan of Nick Bantock's and this book only strengthens my enthusiasm. I love the tone and style of Nick's writing -- it's as if he's having a conversation with the reader. And the exercises are so enlivening -- even for someone who is much more of a writer than an artist. I'm sure Nick will make sure the Nook version gets straightened out, but in the meantime the book version is beautifully made and presented.
