Book Shelf

Marketing, whether in the arts or elsewhere, is a process that should be developed over time. As part of this development it is more than worthwhile to learn from those who have been there before and from those who spend a lot of time analysing and thinking about the practice. Here are some of the books we have on our bookshelf, both about marketing and website development that we think are well worth investing in:
