Booksmart Fine Art Metal available at inkAID & Shades of Paper

The Booksmart Fine Art Metal series is now available from either inkAID or Shades of Paper, as the popularity continues to grow. Both retailers will have all five surfaces available along with every size we have cut.

The inkAID product can be used in conjunction with the Fine Art Metal series to create images with multiple layers. This can be done by first printing on the metal then using inkAID to coat on top of the printed piece and finally print again on top of the inkAID surface. This is why we have teamed up with inkAID to offer their material to artists and photographers while they also distribute our metal series. The creative options are limitless!

The Fine-Edition Book with Eric Kunsman of Booksmart Studio™ Photokina 2006

One of the most important aspects of the digital photography revolution was the ability to create books of your own images without the need for a publisher, or even the need to have a press run. In this interview with Eric Kunsman of Booksmart Studio, we discuss the rise of the fine-edition book. In the past, an artist didn’t have too many choices if they wanted a book of their work, but with the advent of digital imaging technology, everyone from photographers to scrapbookers are creating their own books, and in the fine-art realm fine-edition books are allowing artists new ways to reach their collectors, and audience.
