On Creating Things Aesthetic (Paperback)

On Creating Things Aesthetic By Leonard Koren Cover Image
Not in stock at Boswell. Available to order.


This is a
pared-down, demystified overview of the mental operations involved with
creating things aesthetic, i.e., art, design, and the like. It is a
disarmingly clearheaded and unsentimental look at the creative process by an
eminent creator. The book's
photographs and design serve as an example of what the creative process, at its
most sophisticated, can yield.
