Below you'll find a few of the books you'd see if you came over to my office. I've had some of these for nearly 20 years and have returned to them over and over again. Some are geared towards artists and others dip into other topics or audiences that you might have to wade through a little, but I PROMISE there are valuable ARTrepreneurial nuggets in each of them.

Each book image is an active link to buying information on Amazon. But if libraries are one of your happy places, you can find many of them there.
