Musician/performer Amanda Palmer has completed work on The Art of Asking, subtitled “or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help.” Based on her experiences as a rising artist and musician, the book follows Palmer’s examinations on the relationships between artist and fan. Prior to the book, Palmer appeared at a TED Conference in 2013, discussing the topic; “I think people have been obsessed with the wrong question, which is ‘How do we make people pay for music’. What if we started asking? How do we let people pay for music?”
The Art of Asking will be released on November 11 in hardcover, eBook, and audiobook formats; further information and unsigned pre-order copies can be found via Palmer’s website. Also via the website on Palmer’s blog is an entry detailing the making of the book’s cover, on which she cooperated with photographer Allan Amato and several Los Angeles artists.
Furthermore, Palmer will embark on a book-signing tour of the United States, with dates to be announced soon.
