"Drawing together the complete Phaidon interviews with artists since 1995, pressPLAY is a collection of conversations with some of the world's best-known living artists. From highly established artists such as Louise Bourgeois and Alex Katz, to midcareer masters Peter Fischli and David Weiss and Jenny Holzer, to the current generation including Maurizio Cattelan and Pipilotti Rist, the artists in pressPLAY work in every variety of media - from painting to video, sculpture to installation. In discussion with key art critics as well as fellow artists, novelists, musicians and theorists, together the players in pressPLAY explain in full what it means to be an artist today."… (more)

A book full of short quotes by writers on writing, I was able to extract half a dozen writing prompts from it, and I am sure more dedicated writers will be able to find more.

Three stars: additional star awarded for Octavio Paz's quote "I learned the precision of language from Japanese poetry" and Audre Lorde's "I was constantly reading, but not things that were assigned."
