[BKARTS] Exciting Opportunity for Artists - Los Angeles/Cerritos Library



Straight Talk About Selling Artists’ Books

You've wrestled with your  idea, determined the best structure, design, 
images, papers, text, and  fonts.  It’s finished and it’s beautiful, even 
better than you  imagined. Now what? Now comes the really hard part. Or does 
it?

No  one knows the book arts market better than Bill and Vicky Stewart, 
owners of  Vamp & Tramp Booksellers, the veritable book arts haven in 
Birmingham,  Alabama. The
Stewarts have been selling artists’ books and fine press books  for 20 
years, and their words are worth more than a thousand  pictures!

Please join Bill and Vicky Stewart in an open-forum discussion  about the 
business of artists’ books. They will talk about the various  choices in the 
marketplace, and what directions an artist can take.   They will give 
special consideration to these four basic  questions:

Why do you want to sell?
What  are you selling?
Who will your buyers be?
How  are you going to do this?

The Los Angeles Book Arts Center invites you to  join us for this free event 
at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at the  Cerritos Library, which is located 
at 18025 Bloomfield Avenue in Cerritos  (S. of Artesia Blvd., E. of 
Pioneer).

The Los Angeles Book Arts  Center is a creative, intellectual and technical 
resource for artists,  collectors, dealers, curators and all individuals 
interested in the book and  paper arts. It is the center's mission to serve 
as a network and  clearinghouse for information, education and resources. 
This is being  accomplished through   networking, workshops, lectures,  
publications, exhibitions and outreach. Our commitment is to build a strong  
community as well as to further individual pursuits in the book and paper  
arts.

The Los Angeles Book Arts Center (LABAC) was founded in  September 2002. 
Open meetings, hosted lectures, classes and continuous  online discussion 
groups all contribute to building a strong book arts  community in Los 
Angeles. We offer the broadest possible range of classes in  the book arts, 
drawing and calligraphy, paste papers and monoprints, book  structures of 
all types, cases and boxes, and everything between and beyond.  The Los
