YES

Artists’ books come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. I prefer the ones that are conceptually striking, not made for the sake of craft. Usually these are simple, small, and cheap. Often I wonder about the economy of artists’ books. We work and make and publish books in small editions, and then we sell them at reasonable prices. How does this work? This book explains in detail how artists make (or lose) money with self-published books. The book comes in two editions: the regular edition that is very affordable and a very limited edition that makes the money.
