“A gorgeously illustrated example of the beauty that can spring up when people refuse to accept conventional definitions of artistic success, [the text] reveals artists who speak openly and joyfully about the joys of creating something just because creating it is cool and fun … . it’s good to run into artists who are committed to perfection in a form that is by its very nature temporary.”
