The Glass Artist’s Studio Handbook
We are seeking submissions for possible publication in The Glass Artist’s Studio Handbook, an upcoming book that I’m writing for Quarry Books. Publication date: June 2011. Quarry Books is an imprint of Rockport Publishers, an international publisher of high-quality visual and idea books for design professionals and creative enthusiasts – crafters, artisans, designers and artists. (Check them out at http://www.quarrybooks.com/ .)
I would like to feature 15-20 independent glass art studios; our book will cover not only glass art techniques but also how to set up a studio, and I am particularly interested in studios where more than one glass art technique is practiced, but all interested artists and craftspeople who create original glass art are encouraged to apply! (Submission does not guarantee inclusion).
The Submission process will be in 3 steps:
1. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and attach up to 4 low resolution shots of your studio (jpgs, please, not more than 1MB each). Name each attachment with your full name and the numbers 1-4. In the body of your email, please include your name, contact email, website URL (if you have one) and the street address of your studio, plus a description of your studio, what kind of glass art you create and some of your studio’s unique features. If you have any recommendations (based on your personal experience) for glass crafters who are setting up a new studio, please include them. (If selected, your description might be edited for clarity and/or length.) Descriptions should be no longer than ½ page and in English. High quality photography is essential. Deadline – May 5, 2010.
2. If your email submission is provisionally accepted, I will provide you with instructions on how to upload high resolution photos of your studio, up to three photos of your original work and a Grant of Rights form which will give the publisher permission to print your images and description if you are selected for inclusion in The Glass Artist’s Studio Handbook. The second round of submissions will be reviewed by the editors of Quarry Books.
3. 15-20 studios will be selected for inclusion. If selected, you might be asked to provide additional information. Published contributors will be credited in the book and will receive a complimentary copy of The Glass Artist’s Studio Handbook.
I look forward to hearing from you -
ACCEPTANCE BEGINS IMMEDIATELY: early submissions are encouraged!
