LEGACY BOOKSTORE


As our painting, drawing and photography annuals age, they retain their intrinsic value. As our publication history expands, our book vault capacity diminishes. In order to make room on our shelves we've created the Legacy Bookstore, offering the older editions of each of our annual publications at reduced rates. Each publication surveys a three year timeframe, marking the state of the visual arts during that specific period in time and pinning the works on the map of history. (Two volumes offered below are international IPPY book prize winners in their respective categories!) Over time we will add the oldest of each painting, drawing and photography annual to our legacy list below*. The newest of each book can be found here.

* All volumes sold here are completely new, but some may show slight imperfections.

OUR BOOKS AS COLLEGE COURSE SUPPLEMENTS

For over a decade our books have been used extensively as course supplements and reference books by professors and teachers of painting, drawing, and photography. As such they sit on many an office shelf in universities across the world, with some being kept on permanent reference book carts to be used classroom to classroom.

We launched Manifest Press with the goal that our books would survey and collect excellent examples of drawing, painting, and photography made during the sliding three-year window represented by each subsequent volume, and therefore make ideal course supplements for the academic classroom/studio. The variety and global nature of the works included are amplified by the annual nature of the publications, and by the Supplemental Online Resources which accompany each book on our website (offering biographical info, artists' statements, and contact info for each artist included).

For educators and educational institutions only we would be happy to provide class-sized quantities of any individual book at an even greater discounted price. Please contact us by emailing us here to inquire about purchasing our books as course supplements.

 

 



Manifest's 14th season is funded in part by an impact grant
from ArtsWave, the Ohio Arts Council, and the generous contributions
of individual supporters who care deeply about the visual arts.
