GP517 - Handmade Books


We don’t know whether it’s a retro response to today’s media, but there seems to be a lot of interest in books that get made one at a time. We’ll hear from Jacob Samuel, a fine-arts publisher whose limited-edition books are so carefully crafted they’re considered museum pieces even when they’re new. And we also welcome David Drum, a journalist, novelist, and poet who makes and sells his own hand-crafted editions. #amwriting #selfpub #podcast

What IS a handmade book? Are there different types? How did you come to do them, and how do you market them?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.
