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.
