    I guess I expected more from this book than a bunch of links to other sites. I wanted to gain insight into the "how-to's" of art licensing. Oh well.

This booklet provides 20 steps to art licensing and offers many links to Internet sites that have more information for art professionals. This is a quick read but there is a wealth of information in this booklet. The steps begin with acquiring basic information about the art business; Take an art licensing class. Read books ~ The author recommends three "Must Read" books that will give artists much-needed foundation information. Read trade magazines and blogs ~ The author lists dozens of publications that provide valuable information. Ms. Harper also gives the following steps for artists who are well on their way to art licensing success: Get an attorney and learn about copyrights. You need someone who does artists contracts. Look into agents. The author provides several links that help you decide if you need an agent and how to choose the right person. Finding companies to work with. Ms. Harper provides the names and contact information for dozens of companies that make greeting cards and gift items. I found the whole concept that a freelance artist can sell her designs to big companies very interesting. I have been making handmade greeting cards for my friends and family for several years but I never thought about creating original designs and selling them. This booklet is informative and inspiring.
