the handbook to handmade volume 7

the handbook to handmade is a monthly volume of 35 artists and their shops...this makes a great coffee table book. This book makes a great promotional tool to promote your shop and ETSY.
the handbook is sent out to each of the 35 artists for them to use it as a promotional tool.
for $54 what will the artist receive?
with the $54 each artist will receive 2 FULL PAGES in the book. three images from each artist will be placed on their page, along with the artists store url and 100 word short description of their shop. see picture of the sample artist page below.

12 artists will also be selected to appear on the front cover.
as a featured artist your chance to be on the front cover is increased by bumping up the forum thread....

all artists will also receive the book...
*once the issue is complete, the handbook will also be for sale for other artists to purchase*.
sample artist page: from the first volume

" think the idea might be for the artists to share their books. By putting it in their studio for visitors to sit down and read while waiting, or at an artsy cafe where you live. Hence the phrase "Coffee Table Book".At least that's what I would do. I think it would be a fun and professional way to promote yourself and the Etsy community. " executeme

Requirements/ Jury for artists:

1. must have high quality pictures. this book will represent you and your etsy community, so pictures need to to look good in print form..

-picture size: dimensions need to be at least 400x 400

-file size:no smaller than 45kb

2. must be able to use flickr , or e-mail the pictures
timothy adam designs as the author holds the copyright to the book "the handbook to handmade". this does include the right to use your picture in this book only. as the participating artist you hold the copyright to your idea/item. participating artists are paying for a spot in a promotional tool for the etsy community. the more books that are sold the more advertising the artist gets for their money.
