Like you, I usually do my work in a vacuum. I’m here at my computer each day working by my lonesome, although terribly in touch with people in the virtual world.
My book has been the result of this solitary work. But it’s time to get a little more feedback. I want to know what you like and don’t like about your business and business of art books.
How do you feel about the covers, the interior layout, the density of the text?
What led you to your purchase in the first place?
What would you like to see more of or less of?
What would make your books easier to use?
Which illustrations do you like? What illustrations are missing?
What seems frivolous or gives the book a “hobbyist” feel? (This is something I’m trying to avoid.)
My book is not intended to hold all the answers to self-promotion. It is primarily about communication tools and “rules” for promoting your art. The title is I’d Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist’s No Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion (revised).
