The Artist's Giclee Handbook
Written specifically for artists who use paints, pastels, graphite, or other media to create one-of-a-kind 2D originals.
A lot of the advice given doesn’t pertain to digital photographers who sell fine art photography because starting with a digital image is far different than reproducing art originally created in other mediums.
The eight chapters in the book cover much more than the technical fundamentals of image capture, colour control, media selection, and printing. It talks about what to expect during the proofing process and provides tips for choosing print sizes, determining edition sizes, and selecting print media. Plus, it suggests ways to increase the value of each print, and professionally present, package, ship, and store prints.
