Approval Plans

Since 1976, Michael Shamansky has offered the most comprehensive selection of Italian art books and exhibition catalogues for academic and museum libraries. We also feature an extensive selection of titles from Spanish and other European publishers. Now you can acquire new Italian titles more systematically and efficiently. Through our customized and personal service, we will design and execute an approval plan of any size to your exact subject and budget specifications. Approval plans may also be tailored to include Spanish and selected European publications.

Our plans have often been established with long-term academic clients, confirming their recognition of our capabilities. All have expressed a high degree of satisfaction with our service. We would be pleased to supply you with references upon request. Call us today at 1-800-527- 6775 and let us make it easy for you to acquire those publications that are essential to your library.

Approval Plan Terms

  • We ship all new monographs and exhibition catalogues within your precise subject and financial parameters. All books shipped on approval can be returned to us for any reason within 60 days. Our annual return rate is less than 2%. Due to the success of our customized approval plans, we are very flexible regarding returns.
  • Approval plan shipments are discounted 10% from our list price; further, there are no additional shipping charges. Pay the same price you pay your current vendor but receive all the benefits of our speedier service, plus the coverage only a specialist can provide.
  • Our book shipments are accompanied by descriptive title-slips. Prior to each shipment, bibliographic records for each title, in ASCII text format , will be e-mailed to you for eventual inclusion in your library’s database. Further, title-slips describing books that fall outside your plan parameters are mailed separately. We can also customize a “slip plan” to your specifications.
  • Approval plans are easily established on the basis of a completed subject-profile and follow-up consultation. There is no contract to sign. Plans may commence, be revised or cancelled at any time. Please contact us at 1-800-527-6775 or michael@artbooks.com to learn more about our services.
