Learn how to layout and create your own 8.5 x 11″ ‘artist’s annual’ art catalog through Amazon’s KDP publishing platform, using your computer and Word.
Once you’ve created your catalog and ordered your proof, when the proof arrives you’ll come back to the studio for one-on-one help with correcting any issues.
You’ll need to have an Amazon account, or create one here: https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/
If you don’t have Photoshop or want to create your own covers, I will do the cover for you, but it’s a separate service. Email to ask or inquire during the class. Amazon does have a built in cover creator you can use as an alternative.
Your copies, if your book is in the same amount of page count range as mine is (40 pages) will cost between 4 and 5 USD. This is too much to pass them out like business cards, of course, but inexpensive enough to give one to your collectors each year and get a few copies to keep on hand to sell in your online or brick-and-mortar stores.
You’re also free to list them for sale at large on Amazon, too. If you’d like to also create an ebook, you can do that too. Layout for an ebook involves a few changes that I won’t go into for this class, but you can experiment until it looks right to you.
It costs nothing at all to sign up at Amazon as an author and create these books. If any of them do sell to the public through their platform, you’ll earn a royalty.
