Funding For Artist’s Book By A Woman

From Nalo Hopkinson: FYI for those unfamiliar with the term: an “artist’s book” is a limited edition, usually handmade bookwork where the book itself is a piece of art. Not sure whether this grant is open to non-Americans:

Grant Guidelines.

Library Fellows Submission Guidelines

The objective of the Library Fellows Program is to encourage and promote the creation of quality book art. The program provides funds for the creation of new artists’ books by book artists or artists of other media who are interested

in creating a book. The artist who is responsible for the overall creation, design and realization of the book must be a woman. Technical assistance in developing the book edition by both women and men is acceptable.

Only new books will be considered. Previously published books or books that are versions of books previously published or planned for publication will not be considered.

The artist’s proposal must include:

1.      The completed NMWA Book Proposal Summary Form.

2.      A written description of the proposed book.

3.      A mockup of the book as the final product will appear in form and content.

4.      Up to 20 slides of book-related artwork.

5.      An estimated, itemized, budget (in US$) for an edition of 125 books.

6.      The artist’s resume.

7.      An indication as to how the artist intends to publish the book.

Deadline: January 31, annually
