INSPIRED Art Book by ArtOrder

Jon Schindehette from The ArtOrder has just announced their first artbook called INSPIRED

It's a juried artbook that features artworks from various artist.

Unlike other juried artbooks where artists have to trade their art for exposure or a chance to win some prizes, INSPIRED actually pays the featured artists if the book sells well. I think that's a great business model because in addition to the exposure you'll get, you're actually getting paid for your hard work.

I've already seen the book in its entirety and the artworks are great. The only downside is the artworks are presented only on one side of the spread, and the other page is either the artist profile and interview with quite a bit of unused white space.

The page previews below are cropped versions of the spreads so as to make the pictures larger for you to see. The last two pictures shows you the actual format you can expect. It's a square format book and the artworks do not cross the page gutter.
