I started out, way back in the day, reading awesome books by highly creative artists and authors.
Here’s the beginning of a new list for my site on “The Best Creativity Books Ever.”
These are from my shelf. Feel free to chime in with your favorites in the comments!
I am focusing here on raw creativity or creativity in the raw, as opposed to polished or entrepreneurial creativity (we’ll get to these later).
Here are my top creativity books so far:
