The second printing of The Mad Art of Caricature! has arrived…just in time as I was down to my last hundred or so copies. They look good, with the same high quality, glossy, color pages and tight binding. No new content, but a few stray typos and corrections were made.
The big news this time around is I have an official distributor, Itasca Book Distributors, which means the book will soon be available through wholesalers like Ingram. What this means is that brick and mortar stores like Barnes and Noble will now be able to order and carry my book. Booksellers basically refuse to carry self-published books unless they have a distributor/wholesaler, which is why The Mad Art of Caricature! has not been available in bookstores. Now I have one, so those of you in the U.S. can possibly find it at your local bookstore, or in the book rack of your local art supply store. I am looking in to sending information to buyers at Dick Blick, Utretch, Pearl and Michael’s art supply chains so they know about the book and may carry it. You could certainly order through any retail bookseller once it’s listed with Ingram through Itasca. That usually takes a few weeks.
Of course you can always order a copy directly from me, signed and all!
