5.0 out of 5 stars Great for New and Experienced Artists. Nov. 22 2012
By KelciDCrawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Seriously, this is REALLY useful for me as an emerging freelance illustrator. It not only gives complete and detailed listings of publishers and their submissions processes, but it also details other markets like art fairs, greeting card companies, merchandising, galleries, and more. Plus, there are articles written by artists that discuss everything from marketing yourself to pricing your work and improving your communication with your clients.

If you're just starting out like I am, this is the best book that you can get.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good information, but serious gaps Dec 16 2012
By Regina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're a commercial artist or graphic designer, maybe this is the bees knees for market guides. As a fine artist, I find some of the information useful, but there are big gaps.

Galleries, publishers, etc. are organized alphabetically rather than being categorized and cross referenced (except for a resources by state index in the back of the book). This means that if you already know the name of a gallery, publisher, etc. and want short profile level info, you have a handy lookup. BUT if you are trying to make a list of publishers, galleries, etc that are possibilities, you have to comb through the entire section.

There is no distinction made between museums, art associations, non-profit, and commercial galleries. Museums with permanent collections and curators are simply not in there. Sectioning off the types of "galleries" and adding museum information would make this guide MUCH more useful to fine artists.

Similarly there is no distinction made between publishers who commission graphic designs for prints and publishers of art books. Sections would again help fine artists.

An index at the end of the book publishers section with genres, subjects and styles (science, textbooks, engineering, literature, literary journal etc) would be very helpful.

A number of entries are mis-categorized )so you have to wade through the whole thick book.

Overall there is some useful information in here, that I didn't have before. However I will continue looking for a market guide for artists that serves the fine arts better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always the best and most updated! Nov. 23 2012
By Mystic Beeing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've bought several of these over the years and always find them up-to-date with an incredible amount of information. They've never let me down. I love the way they have sectioned off the categories making it so much easier to find what I'm looking for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Articles are too basic, not really a good resouce and NO price data Jan. 5 2013
By Eric William - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book to try to understand the market. The pricing data is hidden behind the one year free subscription to the web site. That's OK because I got the printed book - if you're a Kindle owner, watch out, you get no access.

The book is BIG, but mostly it is a directory of companies that hire - which sounds great right. While that is OK, there are better resources for finding hiring companies on the net.

My focus was on understanding the market that an artist tries to sell into. I found the articles too basic - no meat or insight. What I was left with was a big book which listed lots of companies.

The one good thing, because I do not have the kindle version, is that I can get pricing data. At least one version of market fees/prices by service should have been printed in the book (with the ability to get updates online).

If you do get this, just understand that you are getting a glorified hiring directory. If that is what you want, buy it. It could be a great prospecting tool. But if you want to understand the market, not a great buy.
3.0 out of 5 stars Edit your book before releasing please Aug. 5 2013
By Karen Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I appreciate the Artist Market but so many of the listings after you get into reading them say they prefer local artists and the symbol for local artist does not appear. Seems that the authors did not read their own book!!
But it is valuable to have...next time I hope they do better.
