A guide written in English and German that transcends its Berlin-based origins and gives lots of food for thought to anyone anywhere that is considering publishing artist books, zines, and other small publications. Includes the words of some of our favorite German publishers too! Originally published in 2020 by Small Editions with a New York focus, einBuch.haus has created a new version drawing on the expertise of local artist publishers in Germany. Main topics are: Research, Funding, Production, a Glossary of Common Terms, Distribution, and a Resource Guide. From einBuch.haus:
"How to Book in Berlin serves as a comprehensive guide to bookmaking and publishing, offering insights we wished we had when we were starting out. It includes information on research methods, funding strategies, production techniques and distribution approaches, all underpinned by the perspectives and advice of experienced publishers.
Our ultimate ambition is to alleviate the challenges often associated with the journey of creating artists’ books and to foster meaningful connections within the diverse and vibrant artists’ book communities."
