The book provides useful instructions for storage and shipping but it is too generic and superficial in other areas like insurance, security and inventory control.

This is a great book. It has so much information that I had to read through different sections several times. I would recommend this to any serious artist.

Created ideally as intended for the artist as well as the dealer and collector. Just Great !
