Crafting the art (e)book

  • March 5, 2014
Many different types of books fall into the category of art books: the zine-y artist’s book, the coffee-table book, the museum exhibition catalogue, the scholarly catalogue raisonné. We’ll look at examples of each type, along with the digital formats that work best for each. We'll explore digital art book projects by major museums, university presses, and artists themselves. Some projects worked well and others not so well. Some were expensive experiments while others were produced inexpensively in-house. You’ll leave with a better understanding of what art book publishers want and how to give it to them.
