Art at the LDSBA

August 10, 2010 · 2 comments

There were lots and lots and did I say LOTS of artwork at the convention. Here are just a few that were there.

Altus Fine Art
Altus represents Simon Dewey, Jay Bryant Ward, Judy Cooley, Lynde Mott, Al Rounds, and many others.

Amalphi Arts
Their website is still under construction but they represent some pretty amazing artists. This is one of them. (Guess who?) (I don’t know the answer.)

This is Armor On—artwork featuring the whole armor of God.

Here’s a close-up of one of their products. Pretty cool.
(Thanks Sandra for the URL link and the images.)
Inspirational Art
That’s what the sign says. Don’t know if that’s the company name. Don’t have a URL.

Love the concept here. Some of the posters are pretty awesome. Others are just so-so.

This is Mary, Mother of Jesus. One of the awesome ones!

If you have LDSBA photos to share, e-mail them to me and I’ll post them.

National Family Institute is a newcomer to the convention.

They were fun to talk to and had some great items for sale. Including The 3 Word Journal by Randal A. Wright (pictured above). Interesting concept for “non” writers who want to keep a journal.

They also had a planner for women from The Success Choice, which I thought looked great for moms.

And they had these darling bronzes.

Called “Moments of Life” they are sculpted by Mary Adams. She does not a have a website but can be reached by email: mothera [at] gmail [dot] com.

If you have LDSBA photos to share, e-mail them to me and I’ll post them.

Distributors

August 9, 2010

Although some publishers also act as distributors for smaller presses and self-publishers, there are two nice-sized distributors that service the LDS market. Brigham Distributing carries a lot of books by smaller presses, like Valor Publishing Group, Walnut Springs, Windhaven Publishing and others. Sounds of Zion distributes a variety of audio, games, music, jewelry, stickers, books […]

Some Smaller Publishers

August 9, 2010

Best Books Publishing & Distribution had a booth. I couldn’t find them online. (If anyone has a link, let me know .) They had an amazing two-volume set of books with CDs called We Believe. A 1525-page reference book by Rulon T. Burton, organized alphabetically by topic. I was impressed. Newcomer Greenjacket Books had a […]

Granite Publishing & Distribution

Granite had a nice big booth at the convention.They had two author signings early Thursday morning. Above is Dorothy Keddington, who is a favorite for traditional romance readers, signing her latest, The Fairy Thorn. This is new author, Kristoffer Neff, with his debut book, No Place to Hide. So hot off the presses that it’s […]

Cedar Fort

August 9, 2010

I thought I had a photo of the Cedar Fort booth, but apparently, I only got one of the bookshelf. CFI and its imprints had a slew of books new books and books about to be released on display. A few of them looked pretty interesting. Like this one……about a woman who wakes up to […]

LDSBA 2010: Covenant

Somehow I only ended up with one photo of Covenant’s booth. They have a lot of great books coming out in the next few months. One’s that I’m especially looking forward to seeing are The LDS Christmas Songbook (pictured above)… Chocolate Never Faileth by Annette Lyon Cold as Ice by Stephanie Black Also, Cross My […]

LDSBA 2010: Deseret Book

August 6, 2010

What I like about Deseret Book’s display is the giant posters of their new releases. Here you can see Key Lime Pie on the bottom.That’s one I’m looking forward to seeing. Deseret Book is always the busiest booth. In addition to displaying new products and taking orders, they almost always have an author or artist […]

2010 LDSBA

The trade show/convention itself is only two days this year, Thursday and Friday. The theme for this year is Camelot: With origins in the 12th Century A.D., the Arthurian legends have […]

Books (Part 2)

August 9, 2009

All of these photos were sent to me from Sandra, who attended the convention on Thursday. She also felt it was small and sad. She said she saw everything in just a couple of hours. Thanks for the photos. Cedar Fort’s booth tied with Deseret Book for having the largest floor space. I think they […]

Now for Books (Part 1)

August 9, 2009

Let’s go with the smaller book publishers first, as in smaller than Deseret Book, Covenant and Cedar Fort. Granite publishes a few titles each year, but they also distribute for a variety of small presses. They had a teensy booth this year. (Click to see last year’s booth) Last year, they had several booth spaces […]

Now for Sidelines

August 8, 2009

This is just a taste. Like I said before, I couldn’t find my camera, so I’m relying on others for these images. If you have some, please send them. Real Heroes Posters has Book of Mormon and other scripture hero posters. I thought this was a pretty cool concept but the art wasn’t quite to […]

Starting with Art

August 8, 2009

[Thank you to those who’ve sent photos for me to post! I couldn’t find my camera.] There were a total of 85 vendors at the LDSBA Convention this year; less than 20% were publishers or distributors of books. The rest were what we call sidelines—art, candy, food storage, t-shirts, ties, games, rings, scripture totes, and […]

The Incredibly Shrinking Convention

August 8, 2009

The LDS Booksellers Convention has once again come to a close. I experienced a variety of feelings during this week. While it was fun to see the new things coming out, network with old friends, meet a few new ones, it was also very sad to see how much the convention has changed over the […]
