Make Good Art by Neil Gaiman

In May 2012, bestselling author Neil Gaiman delivered the commencement address at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, in which he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength. He encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he encouraged them to make good art.

The book Make Good Art, designed by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, contains the full text of Gaiman’s inspiring speech.

The anonymous reviewer obvious has no respect for good art or brilliant book designers like Chip Kidd. This is a beautiful book to give as a gift or to just have on your personal collection. It is for book lovers and art lovers alike.

Short and sweet, inspiring and inspired. A must read for all creative types and recommended for everyone else. Neil Gaiman shares important lessons and critical reminders. Chip Kidd puts those words together in a brilliant layout. A perfect little book.

This little book is one of the most beautifully designed books I have ever seen. The limited red and blue color scheme really allows the artist, Chip Kidd, to focus on pure design and he suceeds in every possible way. The subject matter and the design are so well matched. I highly recommend this amazing little book.

This book uses different fonts. That's the only difference between it and the text of the speech available for free online. Skip it.
