A third printing was necessary in the summer of 2014. Now Prain, a writer, speaker and certified design professional is set to follow up with The Creative Instigator’s Handbook: A DIY Guide to Making Social Change Through Art (Arsenal Pulp $27.95). Whether an artist or crafter paints, sews, sings, builds, welds or rhymes, Prain’s new book shows how to make that ‘big project’ actually happen. Combines the stories of 23 creative instigators with colourful photographs and artwork. 9781551528755
