How to commission an artist book
An artist book makes a personal present and is a great way to mark a special occasion, birthday or anniversary. It can be an affordable way of acquiring a piece of work from an artist whose work you admire. A limited edition artist book could be a unique gift for employees or clients, and unlike framed works of art, artist books are easy to post within the UK and abroad.
It is possible to commission an artist book from any of the artists individually, or from the group as a whole:
- Select a member of the artist book group whose work you like
- Contact them through their own website (preferably by email in the first instance)
- Explain what you are looking for, your budget and timescale
- The process after that will vary from artist to artist, but will probably involve an informal, no obligation meeting to discuss ideas. If you decide to go ahead further details will be clarified and agreed.
