From Idea to ISBN: A New Dictionary of Art
The story of A New Dictionary of Art in 10 definitions or All you ever wanted to know about getting into print but were afraid to ask... Robert Good tells the story of A New Dictionary of Art, and the many twists and turns in its five-year journey from idea to ISBN (International Standard Book Number). This lively and informative talk will lift the lid on the perils, pitfalls and possibilities of publishing, including topics such as: pitching to a publisher, running a crowdfunding campaign, printing on demand and how to approach bookshops. Robert's talk will also appeal to all those wanting to make their own creative ideas a reality and, of course, to anyone who wants to know the answer to the question "What is Art?". A New Dictionary of Art was published in October 2017 by Peculiarity Press and is currently stocked by Kettles Yard Cambridge, Modern Art Oxford and Whitechapel Gallery London. It has been variously described as "powerfully provocative", "gloriously essential", and "splendidly bonkers". 7.30pm - Eat, drink, mingle, and chat 8pm - Intro, talk, and Q&A 9pm - End of talk session, another chance to chat 9:30pm - Kick out!
