Self-publishing through print-on-demand (POD) services such as Blurb Books offer an affordable way for artists to develop and present complete artistic visions or projects and distribute their work in a print run of one, two or hundreds. This presentation will explore the benefits and limitations of POD services through the lens of my own experiences in publishing a dozen or so books, primarily using the Blurb platform. Technical approaches to the DIY concept-to-finished book process will be discussed, including software options, skills needed and alternative POD services and distribution opportunities/issues. And more! The presentation will end with a Q+A session.

This presentation is part of Vancouver Art Book Fair’s Art Book Month. Art Book Month is a parallel series of events hosted by a variety of artists, curators, collectives and institutions who are
actively creating and presenting work in this medium.
