This may be one of the simplest books of all time – but one I would have loved as a child, and still think is pretty cool as an adult. Each page gives you an item (or 4) to draw – yes it’s that simple (and that complicated). The official description is perfect:

“A rolling pin, a robot, a pickle, a water tower, a hammock, a wasp, a safety pin, a kiss. Budding artists and experienced sketchers alike will find themselves invigorated by this collection of offbeat, clever, and endlessly absorbing drawing prompts. Some are deceptively simple (just try drawing a bicycle!), some are conceptually mind-bending (sketching the sound of girlish laughter?), and some are refreshingly basic (the only hard thing about drawing an egg is deciding how you want it to be cooked). Hip and helpful, 642 Things to Draw is the perfect inspirational sketchbook, sure to entertain and provoke the imagination of anyone ready to pick up a pencil.”

There is also 642 things to write, and a calendar – 365 things to draw Great gifts for the creatives in your life.
