Art in Print aims to serve the needs of the international museum, collector, artist, scholar, and print dealer communities, as well as to offer an entry point for people outside the field. Art in Print is concerned with both the print’s existence as an object and as a specific and determining mode of communication.
Art in Print was founded in 2011 to provide a venue for critical and scholarly writing about artist’s prints, both historical and contemporary, and to provide a central resource for print information, news, and events. The Art in Print website and journal address topics from Dürer to Warhol, from Beijing to Brooklyn and from connoisseurship to vandalism.
The Art in Print journal appears six times a year and is available as a printed journal and as a digital publication. Each issue includes feature articles and reviews of recent books, exhibitions and new editions, written by an international array of scholars, artists, and critics. In addition, each issue includes a survey of gallery, museum, printshop, and market news and events.
Artinprint.org provides free access to reviews of exhibitions, editions, and books; a worldwide calendar of print exhibitions, fairs, auctions, lectures and other events; links to information on the history, making, and collecting of prints; and a selection of articles from the Art in Print journal. Additional content and PDF downloads of the journal are available to Art in Print subscribers.

Feature articles usually run 2000-3000 words. They must be fully footnoted and sourced. Exhibition, new edition, and book reviews run from 500 to 1,000 words.
