Description - Recipes for Good Luck by Ellen Weinstein
What did Maya Angelou do to keep the words flowing? What is a NASA engineer's lucky charm? How does Thom Yorke prep for a concert? This book peeks into the dressing rooms, studios, labs, and locker rooms of leading creatives, politicians, scientists, and athletes of yesterday and today, to glimpse the unique traits and practices behind their success - from quirky superstitions and surprising fears to pre-performance rituals and unlikely inspirations. Each figure is portrayed with a charming and whimsical illustration, making this both a visually arresting and thought-provoking celebration of the real personalities, creative processes, and curious habits of influential figures who made their own luck. With a handsome silk-screened cloth spine and full-colour artwork throughout, this book makes an inspiring and special gift for anyone who could use - or who thinks they could use - a little good fortune.
