You can find inspiration in everything.

I recently "un-lost" You can find inspiration in everything*: (*and if you can't, look again) by Paul Smith over the weekend. I had forgotten how quirky a read it is - like having different stories, genres and authors in one volume, yet all with the same Paul Smith voice to it. I received this book as a gift and it's been one of the most refreshing titles I have in my library. My work in advertising literally requires me to constantly look at things with fresh, inspired eyes, no matter how much you've had it with the brand (blah) or the client (bleh). This is a good reminder of how you can never really exhaust creativity, nor should you take it for granted.

This is a wonderful book Pixie. Now I hate to be a snob, but the picture you used is of the paperback.

Get on to eBay and start hunting for the hardback. It really is the most wonderful thing.

Every cover is textured. Mine's in velvet. Plus it comes with a cool polystyrene protective case.

Well worth searching for. Love Stan x

Yeah, I got it off Amazon.com. And yes, you are being a snob. :-)

But thanks for the tip, though. Will do my best to hunt down that hard to find hardcover on eBay.
