Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Art Business Encyclopedia, compiled by notable art lawyer DuBoff, contains a wealth of terminology, phrases, and concepts relating to the business and legal aspects of art. Each entry provides the user with excellent information, which is cross-referenced to other appropriate terms. Various appendixes outline, by state, legal statutes pertaining to print and multiple disclosure, artist-dealer consignment, art dealers/sellers, art works, and other special provisions. Also included is a listing of volunteer lawyer organizations. The only negative comment concerns the lack of complete legal citation-either public law, Statutes-at-Large, or U.S. code numbers-within the text of entries relating to acts passed by Congress. The Artist's Resource Handbook is primarily an arts organization/services directory containing extensive background information, description, and commentary. Chapters focus on career assistance, working with arts organizations, professional and legal services, public and private funding sources, and health and safety in the arts. The final chapter concentrates on a code of ethical conduct for artists. Copublished with the American Council for the Arts, these two indispensable reference sources complement each other nicely and are both highly recommended for art and reference collections.-Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
