What are Magical Secrets? They are ways of setting yourself up for thinking creatively, for a sudden understanding, something like a miracle. Kathan Brown learned the Magical Secrets in this book by helping artists of extraordinary acclaim make etchings. She founded Crown Point Press, now probably the world's most influential etching publisher, in 1962. The press celebrated its twenty-fifth birthday with and exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and its thirty-fifth with an exhibition at the National Gallery, Washington, DC. In this book, you'll meet sixteen artists who will be remembered by future generations. Kathan Brown knows them well, and with pictures and graceful, inviting prose she shares with you their ways of working, thinking, and being.

If you are:
*An artist interested in learning by example and working in new ways.
*An individual who wants to be more creative in your work and life.
*A curious observer looking for a way to approach contemporary art.
*An art lover who'd like to know more about etching.
You will deeply appreciate this book. It is rich with anecdotes and abundantly illustrated. On the included DVD, the book's photos come to life. On the accompanying website, you can join Kathan Brown for ongoing ideas about thinking creatively.
