As part of one of my university courses I’ve been conducting a survey of art book readership, asking people to share how and why they read art books. A statistical analysis of results thus far can be found here. The sample size is somewhat small, but hopefully some of the data there will be useful to those involved in art book publishing. Thanks to everyone who participated!
The survey is ongoing — you can participate by going here. Results should in theory be automatically updated to include your answers.
