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!
