Handbook Pricing & ethical guideline

2 Comments Book

Whenever you have a doubt about prices,contracts, one of the advises that is given regularly in the american artists community is “according to the Pricing & Ethical guideline…”. I read that comment so many times that I ended up buying it this summer, in order to see what was all buzz about. And I’m happy, I did it.

I was pleasantly surprise to receive a nice box illustrated with their logo on it. I know, you are supposed to judge a product by his content  It is always nice to receive a product in a nice packaging rather that in a cereal box.The book jacket, illustrated by Noah Woods , is very colorful and nice. That’s for the visual part.

Now, is the book worth the 35$ (+  shipping)? Yes, I think so, pretty much. Not only does the book come with a lot of contract templates, tips, a guideline of prices used in the market, a very good explanation of the standard terms you should expect to see, and much more, but also it’s very well defined and covers most of the industry.

I think this book is a must in an artist bookshelf.

Book jacket

1 Comment Book, Update

This is the book jacket illustration for La boussole sans aiguille by Kokomoina Bacar Tabibou , a comorian journalist, soon available to purchase at edition de la Lune . I particularly liked doing the jacket of this book as usually comorian literature is different, more down to earth, and the poems here are rather dark, a least most of them. If know french, and like poetry or just like african literature I’ll recommended it.
