Souvenir relaunch The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron

26 February 2020

We were delighted to announce this week that Souvenir Press will reissue Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, the bestselling guide to creativity, with a brand new design. 

With a new contemporary text design and lavish covers, Profile will publish The Artist’s Way in hardback in April 2020 in its Souvenir press imprint with the paperback to follow in October. Profile will publish the companion volume of practical exercises, The Artist’s Way Workbook, in September.


Originally published in 1991, The Artist’s Way offers techniques to free up blockages, opening up opportunities for growth and self-discovery. Its fans include Tim Ferriss, Elizabeth Gilbert, Alicia Keys, Russell Brand, Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon. Globally, The Artist’s Way alone has sold over 5 million copies, and has been credited with launching hundreds of novels, plays, films, startups, and other creative projects.

Rebecca Gray, Publisher at Souvenir Press, said, ‘Julia Cameron’s message, that anyone can be creative and enjoy their creativity, has inspired millions and is more relevant today than ever. When it comes to self-care, self-improvement and self-esteem, she is the original and the best teacher, and we are very proud to be working so closely with her on these new editions of her classic works.’

Julia Cameron said, ‘I am delighted to be working with Profile Books, an innovative and exciting venture. I believe the new look of The Artist’s Way will bring to us a new audience, attracted by the clean, up-to-the minute design, which is at once classic and energetic.’
