On Sunday, March 26th MVS will present a lecture entitled “TO BE PUBLISHED, or SELF-PUBLISH? Publishing Options for Artists Today.”
In this informative and richly illustrated presentation, Mary Virginia Swanson will demystify the process of publishing a book of your photographs from the perspectives of both traditional trade and self-publishing paths, helping participants determine the pros/cons of each. She will lend advice on marketing your book at its release and beyond, stressing the importance of a web and social media presence, as well as the value of public presentations and print exhibitions to extend the life of your title in print. Swanson will share resources from her recent title with coauthor Darius Himes, Publish Your Photography Book (Princeton Architectural Press, Revised and updated 2015). Book signing to follow.
Tickets available below. NESOP students and Griffin Academic Members can attend for free – please call the museum directly to reserve your spot.
