But, this is a very readable and likeable book. The book is pleasing to the eye, the sections a quick read, and chapters and sections are well organized. But if you want more in-depth information on actual business information then keep looking.
Not only is this book beautifully illustrated, the information is presented in a way that makes marketing actually quite interesting and understandable. How to decide if your craft is in demand, how to set up your online presence, how to build your brand, even how to get involved in selling your creations at local fairs and markets - it's all here. While I'm no book reviewer - nor do I really feel the need to try to be - once I read this book, I knew I had to tell people about it. I first handed my copy off to Alex (a fellow misc*maker, whom you shall meet soon) as she was just beginning to sell her crochet masterpieces. Next, the book was passed to Elizabeth, another collaborator here. pssst - Liz, give me back my book. Now I've taken my praise to the internet - Do you see what you've done, Kari Chapin?! What I'm getting at here is that if you're interested in learning how to market your work as an artisan, this book will definitely take the edge off that big "M" word - Marketing. If you're on the search for a sort of text book for crafty business models and resources, I'd highly suggest taking a look at this book. This book is definitely my friend :)
