3.0 out of 5 stars Pay for Show 13 July 2008
By Addison Dewitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Though this book and the others in this series by Petru Russu show amazing works and are to be considered a great way to see art from around the world, the method by which these books come into being is to be looked at somewhat askance.

Much like the "vanity" galleries that exist worldwide, these books are basically pay-for-show situations, wherein the artist pays a considerable sum, (upwards of over 1500 dollars US) to be published on their pages. Basically, they would not exist if it were not for the artists paying for the entire enterprise with their entry fees. This situation leaves out all of those "genius" artists whose works may outshine those published, but sadly cannot come up with the funds necessary to enter into the "juried" selection. It would be interesting to see the jury process from the inside.

In a way, it simply reflects the standard gallery practices in most large cities. If you know the right people, have enough influence, can guarantee a following and some sales, ANY gallery will end up showing your work regardless what it looks like.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not even a book 4 April 2014
By Simelion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These books are a FRAUD... Those publishers use the "print on demand" solution and without paying nothing, they ask money from the artists. I am going to say it again: The publisher (actually is not a publisher) pays nothing for the book, because it is a print on demand book, and asks money from the artists to get included.
If you search the internet you'll see that there are dozens of those "publishers" out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars SOMETHING IS JUST NOT RIGHT 15 Mar. 2012
By E. Plowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These people get artist to pay a ridiculous sum of money just to be included in there book.
Artist Beware! A publisher usually pays the artist, not the other way round.

5.0 out of 5 stars a reflection of the ideas 2 Jun. 2006
By Andrea Pagnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Art Addiction 100 contemporary artists, in fact, is nothing other than a reflection of the idea or philosophy of a transversal, complex and at times even incomprehensible our cultural era, to provide innovative spatial dimensions, new temporal dynamics in book form.

Andrea Pagnes, art critic
