The book is divided into 5 sections that will help budding artists achieve success in this competitive field: business, promotion, legal stuff, money and last thoughts.

Another good book by Alison Branagan,
Some useful links, contacts, websites and advice.
All listed and compact into a pocket business guide.
Something I recommend to students, staff and anyone wanted to start or in the early years of their businesses. Easy to understand and to get you on the right track for all the things you have to get your head around.
