Art, Not Chance by Paul Allen

Book Description

Nine highly acclaimed artists were asked to keep diaries over several months, in order to discover how they work. These fascinating accounts reveal personalities that are simultaneously vulnerable and tough. The diaries are anecdotal, often humerous and moving. They tell us more about 'the creative process' than many academic works, showing how new art develops from a synthesis of ideas from many sources, shaped by personal decisions and choices. Though British-based, all the artists work internationally, challenging stercotype and form. The book will be of particular interest to young artists, arts educators, producers and policy-makers, but also to anyone who wants to gain more insight into the arts of our time.

Idea Man by Paul Allen Idea Man, Paperback / softback (October 2012)

Allen has never before told the story of Microsoft from his point of view. Nor has he previously talked about the details of his relationship with Bill Gates or his behind-closed-doors perspective on how a struggling start-up became the most powerful technology company in the world.
