Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils and Rewards of Artmaking by David Bayles and Ted Orland – Lambert bought this and given it away more times than he can remember. Kevin Kelley sums it up with “Easily the keenest insight into making art that I’ve ever read. One continuous aahhaaa.”
Creating a Life Worth Living by Carol Lloyd – Lambert coincidentally found this book when he worked at a motorcycle shop and decided he wanted to get out. Good little exercises to help jog your mind.
Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon – a small, quick reading, visual book filled with some great bits of wisdom.
