Response Time

I usually answer emails the same day. But do read the rest of this page to see if your question is answered. For phone calls in the U.S., leave a message with your number and a good time to call you back. I don't respond to sales emails, particular cut-and-paste messages or sales calls. For real communication, if you don't hear from me within a day, I didn't get your message or my response is in your spam filter. I will answer your questions about artists and art works, if I know but responses may lag. I do delete rude emails unanswered and I'm not the internet reference desk. Manners count!

Sales Calls

If you are selling something, I never buy over the phone (I don't want to reward the interruption since there are so many of them). I do assume that multiple calls with no message are robocalls so they go to the spam filter after a few notifications). If you really think you have something of value to offer, I'll take you more seriously if you send me a personal communication at the address below.

Art Passions Frequently Asked Questions

The Art Passions FAQ covers artists, books, copyright information, rules. No, I do not want to buy your book and I am not qualified to tell you what it's worth, but I do give you some resources in the FAQ. If you write me and ask me a question covered there, I'll answer your email but rather than retype, I'll give you a link to the FAQ.

Art Print Frequently Asked Questions

What's the quality of your prints?

The easy part of the answer: They are printed with archival inks on cotton rag paper. The difficult part: They come from first edition antique fairy tale books whose own printing methods varied in quality. Obvious errors are cleaned up, but for the most part, they are true to the originals. Some sharpness is lost when they are enlarged but in most cases, this is no more noticeable than a modern reprinting of the book. The web image should give you a good idea but feel free to ask me.

Do You Ship Internationally? How much is shipping?

To most countries, yes. Add your items to the cart and you'll get shipping charges at checkout. If you are in a country that isn't accepted, write me and I'll make you a special paypal invoice.

I am looking for a picture in a book I saw that looks kind of like ____? Do you have it and can I get a print of it? What would it cost?

Maybe! I have a good many books not listed yet and I may be able to find it. I get several requests like this a week and if I know off the top of my head, I will tell you. If you want me to go snipe hunting, it can take an hour or two, sometimes longer, to go through so I charge $10 for a search, whether or not I have it or can find it. If I can find it, I can tell you about a print. Let me know if you want me to do that and I'll send you an invoice link.

This place is not very organized. How can I find ___?

I know, but it is coming together. It all started in 1998 and grew. I've moved servers several times. Right now I'm making it as mobile friendly as possible. Good places to start:
