Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction by Jeff VanderMeer (Author), Jeremy Zerfoss (Illustrator), John Coulthart (Illustrations)

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I am not sure anymore why I got this book, but I suspect that I saw some of the illustrations somewhere and liked them. I do not plan to write imaginative fiction any time soon. But this has the potential to improve understanding for what I read and it would probably be a great resource for those who do want to improve their writing.

“This all-new definitive guide to writing imaginative fiction takes a completely novel approach and fully exploits the visual nature of fantasy through original drawings, maps, renderings, and exercises to create a spectacularly beautiful and inspiring object.“

  1. I too got this book for the absolutely gorgeous illustrations! If I remember correctly, they had snippets from various authors on how they get inspired to plot and write. It’s a great coffee table book gift for anyone who’d like to write, I think.

    1. Yes, snippets, excerpts, quotes by a wide variety of authors. I did not read everything, but what I did read seems like a great guideline of how to write better.
