Sometimes you walk into a bookstore with no intention of buying anything, but then you pick up a book, flip through it, and fall in love. “I have to have it,” you think to yourself. And if it’s the last copy on the shelf the need becomes even greater. That is exactly what happened with Wonderbook by Jeff VanderMeer. It’s an illustrated creative writing guide that left me inspired and energized after holding it in my hands for only five minutes. If you’re thinking that because it’s illustrated it won’t be informative enough, you’re wrong. Wonderbook is packed with helpful advice, tips, and interviews in addition to some pretty incredible illustrations. I can definitely see myself reaching for this book time and time again.
