Art Books

… and Art Magazines.

People always ask me what art books and magazines I recommend. So, I’ve put together a library with some of the better art books and art magazines out there that relate to this blog. This art book library is updated from time to time. Some offer insights on contemporary art, others on art making, others on photography and fine craft. Below the book links here are some of the world’s leading and glossiest fine-art magazines.

Books on How to Market Your Art

Books in this section help you to create a comprehensive ‘business’ system. these marketing books should help you to make a living out of making and marketing art.

Contemporary Art Magazine List

I think there’s nothing like the first-mentioned hard-copy magazines when it comes to top-quality art articles and art photography for inspiration, art information as well as to learn techniques and contemporary art trends. Yes, contemporary art magazines can be expensive to purchase. However, chances are your city library has some in their reference collection. If not, then have a look at my second list below, of free online art e-zines. Online art e-zines and art blogs can inform and inspire, and are FREE.
