A book about sharing

I’ve been promising it for a while: my book about why I don’t copyright my work and why you might not want to either is finally ready! You can read it here or purchase the PDF version here.

You Share Good by Gwenn Seemel

Gwenn Seemel’s You Share Good

The book is called You Share Good. It began as a way to organize my thoughts as I worked on my TEDxGeneva talk about the role of imitation in creativity, but it quickly turned into its own project.

I’ve written a couple of book in the last few years, one about art marketing and another about what’s truly natural with regards to sex and gender, but neither of those projects topped 4000 words—not without the introductory essay for Crime Against Nature, but that wasn’t written by me. Meanwhile, You Share Good clocks in at over 19000! That’s no small feat for the visual artist who, just eleven and a half short years ago, wrote her senior thesis about why artists should never write about their art.

Of course, this project wasn’t all about the words. I also created twenty painted drawings to illustrate the book. Many of these works are still available for $200 each plus shipping. Check here to see which ones you could own or visit my RedBubble shop for prints and throw pillows and things like that!
