Please keep in mind.
This is a labor of love.
- ARTPUSH volunteers are donating hundreds of hours to this project.
- The books themselves are expensive, about $15 each to print.
- We have to pre-sell 70 books just to cover printing and shipping costs.
- Book stores take half, so selling local retail at $35, ArtPush receives $2.50 per book.
- There are a ton of behind the scene costs like shipping fees, credit card fees, administrative tasks, graphic, web design, programming, marketing and promotional work involved.
You will need to pre-order the book if you want to ensure you get a copy. We do not have the budget to keep them “in-stock”. Depending on how presales go, we will probably order about 10 or 20 extra copies. Once they are gone, they are gone. If you pre-order you are guaranteed a copy at $28 + shipping. After pre-order, they are $35. Pre-Sale date TBA. Shipping rates may vary depending on location.
