Drawn together from speeches, poems and creative manifestos, Art Matters will explore how reading, imagining and creating can change the world. A creative call to arms, the book will champion freedom of ideas, making art in the face of adversity and choosing to be bold.

Art Matters Reviews
Das war irgendwie klar, die Vorfreude wurde voll bestätigt. Ein kleines feines Buch mit klaren und verständlichen Weisheiten von Neil Gaiman und grandios illustriert von Chris Riddell.
Wenn man die Werke von beiden mag und gerne liest, dann wird man sich hier erneut verlieben. Das kann leicht ein Buch sein, dass man immer da ei hat, einfach nur um darin ein wenig zu blättern, etwas nachzulesen, und manches mehr.
I have enjoyed seeing Chris Riddell illustrate various Neil Gaiman poems and other writings online and was very pleased to get some of them collected in this book. I wish they had included The Day The Saucers Came. Riddell’s illustrations for that were wonderful.
This book made me want to become ME, the person I dreamed of being as a child. I want to learn to stop doubting my abilities and do all the creative things I like to do and start the future I tell myself is just a dream. Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell, you just upped your game!
A lovely collection of short non-fiction pieces by Neil Gaiman on the importance of creativity (Credo, Why Our Future Depends on Libraries, Reading and Daydreaming, Making A Chair, and Make Good Art) illustrated by Chris Riddell, who gives it that added extra. (Would make a nice gift for the creative types in your life.)
What a gorgeous, sweet & very very wise little book. Neil Gaiman is someone that should definitely be read & listened to, so if you haven’t already, why not? If you haven’t bought copies of his books for all the young people in your life, why not? Get out there today and remedy that at once! You won’t regret it, and neither will your young ones.
It has been established the world over (if not, then it should be) that Neil Gaiman is one of the most prolific writers that we have, and we must never forget that. In fact, we must cherish what we have every single day and celebrate him by reading more of him, but obviously, day after day.
Art Matters is a collection of his short essays (all previously published individually and collectively in The View from the Cheap Seats) about art, reading, libraries, and why all of it is so important even ...more

Because Your Imagination Can Change The World

A touching and oh-so-important reminder of the importance of art, of making it, consuming it, sharing it. I knew most of these essays beforehand but somehow still needed to read this - and I already can't wait to go back to it and feel as inspired as I do right now. Chris Riddell's illustrations are absolutely stunning, as usual. Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell collaborations really do make the world a brighter place.
