The Gift

What it is: The book 1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion by Adam J. Kurtz. Available at Atomic Books. $15.

In 1 Page at a Time, Adam J. Kurtz contends that things are what you make of them. And that (just maybe) our time and creativity could be better put to use by putting down the iPhone (and attendant apps) and picking up a pencil. He proposes 365 prompts, exercises, lists, and activities to get your creative juices flowing. With this little volume, Kurtz has managed to offer us ways to relax and rev up at the same time– to give ourselves some space while filling it.

Who it’s Perfect for:

The Friend Stuck in the Monotonous Job: You know your friend who constantly complains that their job is soooooooo boooooooringggg? Well, surely they’re telling the truth. But if it’s really that bad, maybe it’s time they found stimulating ways to occupy their time while on the clock. Engaging in some non-computer-screen stimulation may be just what they need to get their gears turning toward finding some more satisfying occupation.

The Jet Setter: Perfect for anyone with a long daily commute on the train, or with weekly transcontinental business flights. Kurtz’s book is prefect for those times when you just need to unwind or take your mind off your inbox for some enforced mental diversion.

1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion is available at Atomic Books for $15. On Saturday, October 11th, they’ll be hosting a release party with the author where you can get the book, grab a drink, and draw with the author himself. For more information, visit
