    1. As I continue to read books on creativity and the business of art, I picked up the classic book by Caroll Michels How to Survive and Prosper as an Artist Selling Yourself Without Selling Your Soul This is the sixth edition of the book, published in 2009 and it has a new chapter on internet art marketing I ve read this book before almost ten years ago and it is as good now as it was then, even better because it has been updated to reflect the times It is a very valuable tool for an artist, espec [...]


    2. Half useful advice, half woefully outdated advice being originally published in 1983 this book does have some useful information on grant proposals, but their advice for marketing includes no information about online marketing but it does say put together a press kit with a 8x10 glossy headshot I believe most of the glossary in the back can be found online Some of the assumptions entire chapter on how to psych out art dealers are a little strange, and it contains none of the middle ground that t [...]


    3. I am still reading this book and plan to use it as a guide for furthering my career as a visual artist After rereading several sections, I will now get to the end of the book However, I will most probably be working with it for a long time to come It has answered questions that I have had for years about the practical how to ways to get my work out into the world and move forward as a successful visual artist The section on writing a resume is PRICELESS


    4. DNF I read a few chapters and skimmed through a few looking for useful information that might pertain to my needs This book has been updated, but perhaps needs it is just plain, dry information not creative non fiction I think it could have been written in a much interesting way It has an extensive resource section at the end.



    5. I read the new version of this book and wow This is a fantastic, hands on, straight forward look at business for the artist It doesn t minimize the importance of connecting to others and selling your work and yourself as an artist to the right people It also emphasizes the importance of not limiting yourself by location or others perceived value of your work I especially liked the real world advice about hard work being a basic element of success, and how the starving artist is just a myth unles [...]


    6. Brilliant, inspiring, scary, overwhelming and full of great advice Can t wait to put it into practice I think this should be a must read for every Arts graduate wondering how they are going to make it after school I wish my University had provided any kind of course or workshop on the art business subject This book is full of valuable information and creative people in all fields of art can find something for themselves, even if it is just reference toward further resources which there is a lot [...]


    7. The author brings up a lot of excellent points and arguments I don t agree with all of the actions recommended, however it is an important book to begin grasping how the art world works and getting a good business sense for your art career Just pause before doing all that is advised and see how your own career is developing, particularly in light of changing global economics and internet sales.


    8. This book is straightforward and organized well Most of the information is common sense, but it s really helpful for beginning to sell art I liked the tips on finding appropriate galleries, pricing, etc because it s nice to have an idea of what to expect I didn t rate it 5 stars because it was kind of a dry book.


    9. This book addresses many elements of having a career as an artist I liked that, aside from the practical advise of applying for galleries, grants, etc it addressed the psychological conflicts one might encounter conflicting feeling about monetizing on your artwork, feelings of self doubt, competition, etc A very useful read just make sure you get the most current edition


    10. Everyone in the arts should read this, including writers There is a huge appendix in the back with a ton of resources, and she lays out the business aspect of art in a non anxiety producing way.



    11. Enjoyed the clear concise and precise info Little weak on the cyber and internet info but a book full of good solid advice for any artist


    12. Extremly useful as a resource guide I could not be without this book No artist should be without this in their library.
