Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer; A Recommendation

This isn’t a book review, it is a recommendation and a tribute to what might possibly be one of the best books ever imagined for creative people. First published in 2013 and revised in 2018, Jeff Vandermeer’s Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction is a must read for anyone interested in creativity.
You don’t have to be a writer to enjoy the book; it is an invaluable resource on any bookshelf as a guide to creativity and the workings of the imagination. But if you are a writer, you will be pleased to know it is packed with instructions for plotting, narrative structure, character creation, world-building and more. The book is fat and heavy with many examples, interviews, essays, and stunning illustrations. It really is a book of wonder – a beautifully crafted work of art that is both an homage to, and a textbook for the imagination.
