Read this review

“This book is more than just about Autism. This book is about different ways to view the world, expressing emotions, and fighting a stereotype that has been generated. The stereotype that people on the spectrum are not creative, NOR do they have emotion. This book MORE than defies that myth. In fact, it clearly proves that the myth is WRONG. It is a beautiful collection of people on the spectrum who create art with such emotion.

I’m a tough art critic. I am particular to certain forms. Somehow, within these pages, I found myself saying “I like that.”, over and over again. My mom and I, who don’t usually agree on the same art, found ourselves liking the same pieces, with different interpretations. By the time I had finished looking through, I was so inspired to create my own works.

The truth is, The Art Of Autism: Shifting Perceptions is the best book of collective artwork I have ever seen. Never has an art book touched me in this way.”
