Read All About It

Spark for the Fire is an inspirational book written to encourage those who want to excel. Featuring contributions from creative people such as Nick Park, Academy Award winner and creator of Wallace & Gromit, and hugely successful chef jamie Oliver, this book is for the youthful – in age, experience or attitude – and those who want to be, whether to kick-start a career or reignite an established one.
Ian Wharton examines how creativity is something best practised by embracing characteristics of youth, and the stories in the book show you why creative favours intuition, the merits of exploration, creative purpose, and the necessity of daring to fail.
