Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more. While we don't aspire to publish a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are deeply committed to quality books that help creative professionals succeed and thrive. We often publish in areas overlooked by other publishers and welcome the author whose expertise can help our audience of readers.

Step by step, readers will learn how to store and handle art properly, photograph art, insure and secure art, set up proper environmental controls, mat and frame safely, and utilize manual and computer systems for record keeping. This third edition also features all-new information on technological advances, materials, methods, and art forms, plus interviews with leading experts.
