It's a great book for graphic artists and illustrators. Everything you really need to know about how to go about your practice, including all the pricing, legal side, and how to deal with problems. The only downside is it's quite dry. I'm an artist and quite easily distracted so it takes me a while to go through it. Also, some of the wordings could be better because sometimes if you're not business oriented it could take you a while to understand. but overall i'd really recommend it

This book is close to a 'must have' for freelancers. It delivers the message that you can't price your services too low or you help to bring down pay rates for everyone. It doesn't exactly solve the problem of freelancers not based in big cities that can't find clients to pay the rates NYC ad agencies will pay.

It has a lot of very useful information for all kinds artists, and it can inspire considering art fields you aren't yet involved in.

Im just jumping in because somebody gave this a 1 star for invalid reasons. This series of books is just the best when it comes to teaching artists how to act in a professional world, pricing their work, rights, and all that stuff. Its definitely a must have.

I'm giving this book a five because content wise it's everything I wanted to know and more. One of the more difficult tasks in the design world is pricing your services accordingly. What this book offers is a starting point, whether your market demands lower prices or your lucky enough to be in a market and have clientele that is willing to pay the published recommended prices, either way you have a place to start. I don't have any clients willing to pay $2k+ for a logo, which is a shame but now I know understand my place in the market. Great book for every designer!

This is book is really a must for design SA's or others with small design business that need to do pricing. I'm not saying that you stick with this per say but this rounds out your knowledge and gives you a starting place and further you'll notice that as it is updated over time this book has been keeping pace starting to include newer areas of design and digital UX design which is my passion. In any case for some one in the industry it is a must read.

The latest version of the Graphic Artists' Guild is about four times the book my last version was, but includes a lot of material not relevant or even extant back then (computer graphics, e.g.). While it doesn't pretend to be a substitute for an agent or attorney, it does have invaluable reference and resources, including sample contracts, release forms, etc. (alone worth the price of the book!) and the professional pay scale for a plethora of art-related jobs (including covers and interiors, salaried positions, imprinted sportswear or printed fabric/wallpaper ) --- you name it, it's in here. Up-to-date coverage of the latest versions of the Copyright laws and where to go for changes, etc. If you aspire to make art for a living, or even a serious hobby, you need this book.

If you're a designer or really an artist, who is unsure of the business aspects related to the field you love, then this purchase is for you. A perfectly comprehensive pricing guide that doesn't task you with searching deep for information, because the premise of the book is to cover all topics associated within, from cover to cover. Read it as such and you can't go wrong.

Ok... like "K" said, it's a dry read (and that's putting it lightly). It's like reading a law textbook, which was a little disappointing for me personally -- keep in mind that I'm bit of a word-a-holic. I go out of my way to look up words (meanings, history, phonetics, etc...), but it was very hard to fully comprehend what I was reading in a single passing. So in my personal opinion, it's a little bit more "sophisticated" and textbook-y than it needs to be. HOWEVER, it's a definite MUST HAVE book. An EXCELLENT resource that will be extremely useful in the very near future and beyond!

I always wondered if there was a basis for understanding other disciplines in order to collaborate in a project together. This book covers much of that as it gives contracts and language useage of these other disciplines, making a writer comfortable in my pursuit of other creative for mutual gain. I can see that most of my new works will be offered as a collaborative effort, making use of the best parts of each to make a better whole. This book is made better when offered with Business and Legal forms for graphic artists.
