In­spired book idea

In­spired art Jon Schin­de­hette aims to tackle the norms of pub­lish­ing with his new book, by split­ting the prof­its

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Imagine Nation -

Jon Schin­de­hette’s lat­est project aims to spread the wealth equally. It’s a book of work from var­i­ous artists, who’ll share in any prof­its made.

Art books need to be ex­cit­ing, inspiring and unique. With plenty of glossy, im­age-led pub­li­ca­tions on the mar­ket, it's a tough task to get your re­lease no­ticed, so ThinkGeek cre­ative direc­tor Jon Schin­de­hette de­cided to do things a lit­tle dif­fer­ently.

The IN­SPIRED art book is a ju­ried col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal art work from over 30 artists around the world. It fea­tures se­lected works from the In­spired By ArtOrder chal­lenge, as well as short es­says by the artists con­cern­ing their in­spi­ra­tions, and a mini-artists gallery. “What makes this one spe­cial is on the other side of the pur­chase,” Jon ex­plains. “Un­like more ju­ried art books, where the artists trade their skills and cre­ativ­ity for ex­po­sure, or a chance to win some prizes – we’ll all share the prof­its of the book. This means that each artist gets a piece of the pie if the book does well.”

Orig­i­nally planned as a Kick­starter ven­ture, Jon will now be self-re­leas­ing the IN­SPIRED pub­li­ca­tion. With jury mem­bers in­clud­ing IMC founder Re­becca Guay and Or­bit Books’ cre­ative direc­tor Lau­ren Panepinto, the book is set to be re­leased on 15 March. You can pre-or­der the IN­SPIRED art book now, with the dig­i­tal book de­liv­ered within 24 hours of the sale.
