FAQ

How do I get my book reviewed?

See our submissions page for details.

Who writes the reviews?

Thus far I have written all the reviews. However, due to an increase in demand, I am exploring opportunities to work with other writers.

Do you ever write negative reviews?

I write fair, honest (and subjective) reviews. My mission is to promote the appreciation of artists’ books, and connect artists with readers who will enjoy their work. As a fellow artist, I treat people how I want to be treated.

Is there anything you don’t review?

Probably not, but feel free to email me first if you’re concerned.

Where do the reviews go?

The full reviews will be archived on this site. I share highlights on Instagram, at www.instagram.com/abreviews/.

I work diligently to find and grow the audience for artists’ books, and hope to expand to other platforms as this endeavor evolves.

If your book is featured on another online platform that supports reviews, send me a link and I’ll post there too.

Do you keep the books?

Yes, and I cherish them dearly.

I do offer a limited number of subsidized reviews, in which case the book is returned to the artist.

Do you review digital books?

Yes, I will review artists’ books that exist in digital form. I won’t extrapolate from a digital facsimile to write about a physical book.

Can publishers or dealers send books?

Yes. My reviews include photos and video, so make sure you have the artist’s permission to reproduce images of their work.
