When I sat down to write about this book, I had no words. It is so unique and imaginative itself, that I couldn’t begin to describe it. As you can see, however, I finally found some language that will suffice.
Title: Wonderbook – The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction
Author: Jeff Vandermeer
This book is amazing and I don’t use that word lightly. It’s full of beautiful artistry and really great writing ideas and tips. There are special pieces from accomplished authors like Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and Neil Gaiman peppered throughout the book as well. The book contains sections on Inspiration, Story Structure, Worldbuilding, and so much more.
Published in 2013, it has rave reviews on Amazon and many writers I talk to have it, use it, and love it. I can’t speak highly enough about this book. So if you’re a writer, no matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, you will find something amusing, inspiring, or informational between the covers of this book. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can pick it up for less than $20. Non-Prime Members pay $25.
