There’s no abracadabra to be found here, oh no, but there is magic of a different kind, that of self belief and exploration. This book encourages you to open your mind to techniques which will help you achieve greater creativity, power over your subconscious and to think a little differently. Anthony Alvarado can be a little bit cheeky and his book ‘D.I.Y Magic’ is most definitely a little bit different. I smiled, I nodded, I raised an eyebrow and I connected to this book as I read about connecting to yourself, other people and the world around you. The chapters allow you to dip or submerge, you can try the techniques at once or save them for later, and the illustrations encourage second and third looks. ‘D.I.Y Magic’ offers ‘mind hacks’ for the present day, for the here and now, and I for one, will be dipping my toe in and trying some to inspire me to greater things both large and small! ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

D.I.Y Magic A Strange and Whimsical Guide to Creativity by Anthony Alvarado

“This is NOT a book merely to be read; it is a book to be lived!”

D.I.Y Magic offers a set of mind hacks that will help any creative artist to find new sources of inspiration, encompassing self-help, psychology and philosophy. It will change the way you think about yourself, about creativity, and about the world.

Hack into deeper levels of creativity, access the subconscious, and discover techniques that have been used by artists from Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Beethoven, Richard Wagner to David Lynch, Leonardo da Vinci and Jack Kerouac for centuries.

From creating a memory palace to Salvador Dali’s spoon trick, these deceptively simple exercises collected by Anthony Alvarado are designed to help those born into the modern age of reason to escape the rational web of what we already know, and to see.

“Here are some keys that open doors to imagination, creativity and yes, magic.”

Illustrated by a host of visionary artists, including alternative comic artists such as Farel Dalrymple and Ron Rege Jr, D.I.Y Magic is a radically original arsenal of ways to think, perceive and experience the world.
