- Aug 1, 2009I really have to disagree with you on this one. There have always been
artists and buyers interested in the process. There are buyers who are only
interested in getting something CHEAP. There have always been producers
willing to give it to them. Just because there has always been a market for
and producers willing to provide the cheap product, does not mean there is
no market for the product which strives to maintain the process.
As long as the producer is not attempting to mislead the buyer with the
product I have no problem. However, when there is an attempt to promote a
product as something other than what it really is, I am prone to speak up.
So, I am saying that I handset miniature books, broadsides, and historical
reprints because there are people out there who can appreciate the
difference in the product. If you don't want to do that, fine. But don't try
to convince yourself or others that no one cares.
