Blurb.com is a resource I have recommended in the back of I’d Rather Be in the Studio! Since I have never personally used Blurb, I want to share with you this recommendation from happy customer Rebecca Crowell.
Using the website blurb.com, you can download free self-publishing software, and after you have put together images and text (using templates) and have uploaded your book it will be printed upon demand–as many copies as requested, from one on up. There is no up-front cost–the software is free. You can even offer your book for sale on the Blurb website and add a profit margin if you wish.
I used this website and software to publish a catalog of my work that I plan to have available at my galleries and other situations where self-promotion is called for. By the way, some of the text in my book grew out of the class The Artist Statement and Beyond, which I took from you a few years ago. So I’m still finding ways to use the writing I did then–updated of course!
Thanks, Rebecca! And I’m thrilled that the work on your statement continues to serve you well. While I know longer offer that class, I have put it in e-book format under The Relatively Pain-Free Artist Statement.
