"This lively manual pays tribute to the ubiquitous, universal, and highly user-friendly Sharpie marker. Many readers will be surprised to learn that there are dozens of types of Sharpie available today, which Goodman (design, Sch. of Visual Arts; coauthor, 40 Days of Dating) delineates in the introduction. A clever history of the marker, rendered in Sharpie, introduces the guide included in the introduction. The heart of the guide is the many short creativity exercises that are meant to inspire readers to try new things and surprise themselves. Various artists share their own Sharpie experiments, with lots of tips and intriguing ideas thrown in along the way. These permanent markers can be used on almost anything, giving the reader the sense of open-ended possibility and immediacy. VERDICT This title holds wide appeal for young, mature, beginner, and seasoned artists alike." - Library Journal
