Here's the blurb:
Do you struggle with perfection, want to call yourself an artist but are afraid to, hesitate to give yourself the time and freedom to pursue your creative dreams and desires? If any of these apply, Art Lessons, Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord's little book of inspiration and insight, is for you. As one reader wrote, "it reads like a letter from a friend or like a record of treasured conversations rather than a tome of wisdom from a teacher." Part personal story and part reflection, the book contains seven essays which begin with hand-lettered quotes. Each contains hard-won truths that apply to all the arts and life itself.
To Art Lessons, Susan brings her skills in writing, calligraphy, and book design, as well as her years of experience in the field of artists' books and her love of the book as an object in and of itself. The book is designed for an intimate reading experience—the voice is open and warm and the size is small—a perfect fit in the hand for reading or a large pocket or small purse for carrying. Each copy of the book is printed by Paige M. Gutenborg, the book-making robot at the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, MA.
