The International Society of Glass Beadmakers invites glass artists to submit work for the upcoming publication, The Art of Glass Volume II:  No Limits, available for the 2017 holiday season. 

The Art of Glass: No Limits celebrates inspired work created by all glassworking techniques. This volume honors the limitless passion that makers using all forms of glass bring to the medium: cold, warm, and hot. Artists creating glass work in all forms including glass beads, sculpture, marbles, pipes, millefiore, glassware, wearable items, and more are invited to submit their work for inclusion in this book. 

ISGB membership is not required.

Artists can select a half page showcase or a full page showcase. The fee for a half page is $50 and a full page is $95. Each participant in the publication will receive a complimentary digital version of the book. Print on demand and eBooks will also be available to the public for purchase.

In addition to their circulation within our organization, the ISGB’s publications are routinely housed at the Rakow Research Library of the Corning Museum of Glass. We are delighted to announce that they will now also be included in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art and Portrait Gallery Library where they will be available as part of that library's mission to support the collections and curators of the Renwick Gallery and its extensive glass collection.

The ISGB is also very pleased to announce that we are partnering with two photographers who are offering great discounts on photography packages for this book. Doug Baldwin’s offer is at http://dougbaldwinphoto.com/2017isgbbook.html.  David Orr’s special offer can be found here: http://davidorrphotography.com/isgb. Artists may have their work photographed at The Gathering in Las Vegas, at Bead and Button in Milwaukee, or via the U.S. Postal service. While participation in the book is open to all glass artists, to take advantage of these special photography discounts you must be a current ISGB member.
