5.0 out of 5 stars Are you serious about your craft? 6 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Artist's & Graphics Designer's Market 2000 is amazingly serious. As the art editor of a magazine, I constantly encourage illustrators to take advantage of this resource. The highlights of its contents include: Websites for Artists, a Special Markets Index, the current needs of Book and Magazine Publishers, as well as realistic advice and numerous samples of published artwork. Artist's & Graphics Designer's Market is a worthwhile tutorial for the inspired and the creative to get serious. With so much competition, you have to be serious.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why is this on sale in the UK? 10 May 2004
Format:Paperback
As this is a directory available to the UK, you would think the guide would cover a least some UK galleries, websites etc..
Alas not, the directory covers only US and Canada, which makes it baffling why this is available here in the UK identical to the US edition. A good quality book for sure, but I'm not planning on emmigrating to make use of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars why oh why 30 July 2007
Format:Paperback
As this is a directory available to the UK, you would think the guide would cover a least some UK galleries, websites etc..
I was dismayed when I recived this book to find nothing for the UK market place!!! A bit silly as it was sold to me here and did not say ( at least not that I saw ) that it was for the US market place.
BUT If you find a UK version I would imagin it would be great

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent Investment 26 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you're serious about your art, this is THE book to have. Exceptional resources for getting into the market. The price is a small investment for a necessary tool. This may sound corny, but you'll see that the oppotunities are great and the possibilities are almost limitless. I have hope, people!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a "must have" (2002 Edition) 27 Oct 2001
By Alejandra Vernon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're an artist, illustrator, cartoonist, just starting out or a seasoned pro, this is one that belongs in your book collection on a yearly basis.
The 2002 edition starts out with an intro from the editor (thank you Mary Cox for this invaluable book) and a "Keynote Address" from speaker/consultant Ilise Benun on self-promotion.

The 2nd section continues with "Business & Marketing Seminars", tips and guides that are very informative. Lance J. Klass, president of Porterfield's Fine Art Licensing (one of the best in the field) writes "Ten Secrets to Success in Art Licensing", and anything Mr. Klass writes is worth reading, reading again, and memorizing !

The terrific Jim Hunt, cartoonist extraordinaire, writes "From the Front Lines...Practical Advice from Freelancers to Freelancers", and interviews 3 successful illustrators...I like the answers to Jim's question: "Besides having a really "cool boss", how has working for yourself changed your approach towards getting up and going to work each day ?".
Of these and the 8 other articles, there will be at least half that you'll find fit in to your line of work, and you're sure to learn, and be motivated by them.

3rd section: "The Markets". Listings on the many places you can market your work, and this needs to be updated yearly, as you'll find new entries, and very important, many new contact people on the listings from previous years (each listing is marked with an icon if it's new or has a change of address/contact person).
The listings run the gamut from greeting cards to record labels, and there are 4 "Insider Reports" included.
Many of the listings have web sites, which I always check, to see if the style represented is one I'd fit into.

4th section: Artist's reps, web sites, glossary and indexes.
It's a great book...it will help keep you in touch with what's out there, make you realize that there are a lot of opportunities to tap into, and if you're ever feeling "stuck", open it's pages, and send some post cards, slides, etc. to one or more of its market entries...it will get you moving, and you never know, you just might get a positive response.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great selling source and much more (2000 Edition) 31 July 2000
By Alejandra Vernon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a must for any artist or illustrator who wants to get his work seen by a wider audience. The listings are great and have details such as who to contact and what their terms are. Also, many companies have a web site so you can see if your work would "Fit in" their catalog. What I most like about this book are the articles. "Do's and Don'ts of Art Licensing" is invaluable...read this before signing a contract.. please ! My favorite, however, are the "Success Stories". One of them, by Jim Hunt, a terrific cartoonist, tells how to use your e-mail & web site for maximum no-cost marketing. I tried it. It works. Thank you Jim ! You won't regret getting this book...it's a good investment.

4.0 out of 5 stars very helpful 6 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be an excellent help to those wanting to make a living with their art. It has lots of "how to" information , interviews and tips from sucessful artists. Being a visual artist myself, I would like to see more information under the gallery section. The information in this book gets outdated fast, so buy the latest edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of ads from companies that don't want new artists! 14 Feb 2007
By shrike_machina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The ads in this book say the companies are looking for new artists. But the response you get from each company is the same, "we're not looking for any new artists, we're just going to continue to promote the artists we already represent". So if you're a new artist trying to get something started look elswhere! This book is a complete waste of time! Also a lot of the companies listed are out of business or their phone numbers are no longer in service. I think all the 5 star reviews are from people that haven't actually tried to put the book into use. They're just impressed by the number of listings & quickly typed up a 5 star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book helps a lot in getting stuff published! 11 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've never seen a book so thourogh. I've seen many books on publishing artwork, but none (that I can recall) have addressses tips and interviews with artists in one package! And there are so many company addresses to look through (card companies, animation, art gallaries, syndicates, etc.). This will definetely keep the artist busy.
