Re: bookarts & ISBN?

    if you want to sell in bookstores, you should have an ISBN. The
address I have for the granting agency is
International Standard Book Numbering Agency, 245 West 17th St, NY, NY
10011, (212) 337-6975. This is from a 10 year old book so I don't know
if the address has changed. I'm also going to repost some websites and
books on writing and publishing that I first posted a while ago. I
recommend doing some research before you start. A great book is Dan
Poynter's The Self-Publishing Manual.

in good spirit,
