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.”
