Artists' Book manual 3rd edition

Artists' Books Creative Production and Marketing: Revised 3rd Edition

Author: Bodman, Sarah
Publisher: Impact Press, UWE Bristol
Date: 05.2010
ISBN: 978-1-906501-05-1
URL Links: www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/bookpub.htm

Abstract:
(An AHRC supported survey project).
A guide for the book artist - in their role of producer, publisher and distributor of their own artwork, to discuss some of the practical issues arising from this. There is a more direct link between the artist and the buyer in the field of artists’ books than any other art discipline. Many book artists are unsure of the market potential of their work and this is particularly difficult when they are directly responsible for sales.

We have interviewed artists about producing and distributing their work, and the importance of artist’s book fairs and events for building relationships with purchasers and other artists. This ranges from established to fledgling artists, curators, collectors (both institutional and private) bookshop and gallery owners, dealers, lecturers and instructors.
