Professional Artist magazine recently published E. Brady Robinson’s Pocket Guide to Self-Publishing for Artists.

The guide takes a broad look at publishing opportunities for visual artists, including several in-depth interviews with artists who have recently gone through the process. It also looks at the many ways in which artists publish and share images of work at different points in their careers.

Publishers from Fraction magazine, Lay Flat and AdHouse Books offer the pros and cons of self-publishing vs. traditional publishing, while
professional artists who’ve published books and catalogs offer first-hand experiences. The guide also covers the basics of promoting online, writing a press release, applying for artist opportunities, fundraising and finding a publisher.
