Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two new books guide the novice through the often painstaking but rewarding process of self-promotion. Vitali has successfully made a living from his art since 1979. Here he provides a comprehensive approach to organizing and building an art career. He includes information on everything from producing your own high-quality promotional slides to the best places to park when delivering a work in New York City. He offers tips on grant writing and working with the media for maximum exposure. Although the annual Artist's and Graphic Designer's Market and Photographer's Market are still more comprehensive references, there should be room on the shelf for Vitali's amazingly detailed and practical guide. President of a publishing services, product development, and licensing consulting firm, Moore describes strategies for success mainly in the commercial world of greeting cards and gift wrap. She gives advice on analyzing the market to discover what is most likely to sell to manufacturers and the general public. Negotiations of license agreements and the pros and cons of hiring a licensing agent are discussed. The second half of the book provides samples of various work-for-hire, license, and agent agreements. For licensing information in a concise form, libraries may want to stick with Caryn R. Leland's Licensing Art & Design (Allworth, 1995); the only advantages of Moore's book are additional sample agreements and a chance to see things more from the giftware manufacturer's viewpoint.Judith Lesso, West Virginia Univ.

After reading Vitali's resource art guide I came away with a smile, besides all the information which can make your head spin, he is a very funny writer. Especially the section on Frank Shifreen, I laughed my head off about Group Scud. Lots of info-some technical- but its worth it if you are planning to become a professional artist.
