Knowledge — Changing Channels by Christopher Schreck

Yes­ter­day Chris­toph­er Schreck released a very nice art­icle on Paper­weight named Chan­ging Chan­nels. This text is an inter­est­ing insight view on the cur­rent prac­tices of dis­trib­ut­ing artists pub­lic­a­tions includ­ing four inter­views with Shel­ter Press, Gottlund Ver­lag, Edi­tions FP & CF, Hassla Books, and Pau Wau Pub­lic­a­tions

To gain a bet­ter sense of how art books are mak­ing their way to read­ers, I soli­cited insight from a few of my favor­ite pub­lish­ers: Shel­ter Press, Gottlund Ver­lag, Edi­tions FP & CF, Hassla Books, and Pau Wau Pub­lic­a­tions. While each stressed the cru­cial role of the inter­net in facil­it­at­ing sales and cost-effect­ive dis­tri­bu­tion, they also spoke to the con­tin­ued import­ance of tra­di­tion­al modes of dis­sem­in­a­tion, such as inter­na­tion­al dis­trib­ut­ors, book fairs, and book­stores as means of gain­ing legit­im­acy, pro­mot­ing stra­tegic­ally, and main­tain­ing a pres­ence with­in their giv­en com­munit­ies.”
