Development of The Liverpool Art Book, the fourth in The City Art Book series began in September 2018.  Over 180 artists are already represented in the first 3 City Art Books (Cambridge, Oxford and Edinburgh), which show these cities through the eyes of the artists they inspire. 

Contemporary, vibrant and quirky the hardback books provide a (free) opportunity for artists to get their work seen by a broad audience and to have their work shown in a high quality popular publication.  (127 pages of full colour images with a map to encourage people to walk around the city to stand in the footsteps of the artist).

A word by the Editor, Emma Bennett:

'The City Art Books started from a little idea by an artist frustrated at the lack of opportunities for her and her fellow artists to get their work seen by a broader audience. After a huge amount of hard work to get the idea off the ground for The Cambridge Art Book, it was the constant enthisiasm and support by local artists to keep going, to get the varied work of so many artists seen in once place that kept momentum up. After the sucess of The Cambridge Book, other artists in other cities started to contact Emma to enquire about similar opportunities. So with the help of a lot of coffee and some amazing artists the books conitue to be loved by many. Exhibition groups have formed and artists circles in places they did not exist before and it is exciting to see these developments.'

The book will be published by Cambridge based publisher UIT/Green Books in 2019.
