Sceptre acquires lecturer's book on 'future-proofing for thinkers'

Sceptre has acquired a book by Central St. Martins lecturer and artist Rod Judkins described as "future-proofing for thinkers".

The book, entitled Ideas Are Your Only Currency, is due to be published in January 2017 and was inspired by one of his students asking: "What skills will I need to prosper in five, 10 or 15 years’ time?" Judkins’ response was that in a world of change in which skills become instantly outdated, it is ideas that will last. The book will feature 100 interactive chapters to inspire innovative thinking that can be applied to any discipline, and promises to be both fun and indispensable for anyone who wants to think and live more creatively.

Drummond Moir, associate publisher at Sceptre, acquired world rights to the title from Jonathan Conway at Jonathan Conway Literary Agency.

Judkins is also the author of The Art of Creative Thinking (Sceptre) which, according to the publisher has sold over 60,000 copies of the UK edition while foreign rights have been sold into 12 territories.
