Publishing small - is this the way forward?
Is this a flash in the pan, with it's success based on the novelty factor, or will independent publishers work on a more kick-starter model in the future where the public decide what is actually worth spending their money on?
As artists across the board struggle against the expectation of free distribution of their works, endemic in music and now rife in publishing, this shift towards public valuation is intriguing. However, this model is only sustainable if it remains small scale, directly supporting artists or independents, when as consumer and supporters we are sure that our money is directly subsidising the artists we value.
