My book has been selected. How do I deliver it to you?
You can deliver the book in person or by courier. For the delivery methods, consult the rules under the heading “delivery of the works”
I have decided to send you my book by courier. How should the package be made?
We recommend a fairly rigid outer casing and internal packaging (bubble wrap type) that wraps the book, sufficient to prevent damage in the event of knocks or falls. We also require easily reusable packaging for returns by courier.
If the book is particularly fragile, additional rigidity of the package and abundant internal packaging with bubble wrap is required.
We do not recommend sending via envelopes, do-it-yourself boxes that are not rigid enough or assembled from scrap pieces, sending without adequate internal protective packaging.
Is there insurance for the works on display?
Yes, flat-rate insurance is provided for the period of the exhibition only (it does not include transport and storage at the studio). Anyone who needs greater protection can autonomously take out additional insurance
