I have recently rejoined the ISABA, and I am doing a little research and development for a company who is asking questions regarding altered book artists. I was wondering if you could give me your general opinion on a couple of questions.
1. How many altered book artists do you think there are in the USA? Canada? Europe? Asia?
2. Do you think that, in general, altered artists have been neglected by the arts and crafts companies; specifically, is there a need for direct marketing with tools and such that are made with book artists and crafters in mind; items to ease the work of making your projects?
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
