As children, when we learn to write, we gain an important life skill - a practical means of communicating that we end up using almost every day of our lives, if only to jot down a shopping list or dash out an email. As children, we also know instinctively that drawing is a great way to communicate, but later in life it isn't universally valued and nurtured in the way that writing is. It's not seen as a necessity, it's seen as a specialism. As a result, most of us are robbed of a powerful, rewarding and perfectly achievable skill by a set of assumptions that are just plain wrong. In the 18th and 19th centuries drawing was central to a good education, not because we were training future artists, but because we were training future doctors, nurses, scientists, engineers, builders, cartographers, carpenters, plumbers and gardeners. We recognised the power of drawing to reveal, explain and clarify where words alone fell short. Florence Nightingale's visualisations of mortality data in the Crimean War saved many lives. From the scruffy sketchbook pages of Alexander Graham Bell came the first telephone. Charles Darwin grabbed a scrap of paper and mapped out the tree of life. They all understood that a good drawing is not one that is beautiful but one that does its job. Not a work of art, but art that works. How to Draw Anything sets out to repair our broken relationship with drawing. Firstly, this book asks you to pick up that pencil from where you left it all those years ago and start making pictures again. It will give you back the confidence and joy in drawing you never should have lost. And secondly, How to Draw Anything will equip you with new means of solving problems, sharing ideas and telling stories. It will take drawing out of the art world and put it into your world, introducing you to drawing as a practical tool for everyday life that will change the way you work, think and communicate.

Freundschaft, Liebe und Mut sind die wahren Koordinaten des Lebens Tooly Zylberberg liebt Tee, lange Spaziergänge und den Buchladen ›World’s End‹ in einem kleinen walisischen Städtchen, dessen stolze, wenn auch nicht gewinnbringende Besitzerin sie ist. Tooly hütet nicht nur tausende Bücher, sondern auch eine Fülle von Geheimnissen, ihre eigene Vergangenheit betreffend, die sie selbst nicht alle kennt. Als sie klein war, hatte ihr Vater sie entführt und war mit ihr durch die Welt gezogen, während ihre Mutter Chaos verbreitete, wo immer sie auftauchte. Doch waren da noch Humphrey, der griesgrämige Russe, der Bücher über alles liebte, und Venn, Sarahs Liebhaber, ebenso charismatisch wie egozentrisch, dessen Weltsicht Tooly für immer prägen sollte. Ein Dreieck, in dem Tooly versuchte, Grund unter die Füße zu bekommen, während das Leben sie durch die Luft wirbelte. Tooly fiel durch alle Netze und Raster – und doch wird sie am Ende ankommen in einem Leben, das das ihre ist. Ein großartig verdichteter Roman, in dem der Mut, sich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen, leuchtet wie ein helles Licht.
