Nice, inspirational listen

This is a short audiobook that features the quotes and words of some of the most famous artists of all time. It’s a great way to get inspired, either for the purposes of creating your own art or just living in general.

One thing I really liked about this audiobook was that there were descriptions before each artist and his / her quotes; it’s not just one quote after another for the entire thing.

Many of the quotes are narrated with attempted accents as well. Kudos for the effort there. That made it more enjoyable. Check this one out if you’re looking for a little inspiration yourself.

Full of deep and interesting quotes.

Not only it gives the historical facts, the author and the quote, they are beautifully interpreted and gives you a second set of eyes or thoughts that will expand your interpretation. Well narrated. Excellent for conversation starters, self education and even sharing with fellow artists as part of a community post on social media. Loved it!

Artist by artist book

I would have to say that this compilation of quotes would be best as a coffee table book. I can imagine it designed beautifully with the corresponding art work. I do not think the ascent used by the voice artist was necessary or pleasing. I appreciate the time involved in offering insight of so many long ago artists.
