The Artist's Way

by Julia Cameron


Long before Amazon was around and self-publishing became standard practice, Julia Cameron self-published this book after it was turned down by a publisher. It picked up steam fast and in 1992, was published again by what today is called The Penguin Group.

The Artist's Way outlines a 12-week course to help us spark the light of our inner artist, even if we haven't created much art since doodling a few stick figures in second grade.
