More online publishing news

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is beginning to publish its show catalogs online in free downloadable pdf form. The museum has several catalogs available online now from exhibits in the 1960s. The Ed Kienholz catalog from the artist’s 1966 exhibit, at 4.17M, downloads easily and quickly with a cable connection just in case you’re wondering.  I saw the Bauhaus show at MoMA recently (more on that soon I hope) and passed on the catalog, which was a hefty $75 — available only in hardcover.  Crazy price.  I love the idea of online catalogs.  Free scholarship is good.  Although they could charge a little bit (something fair) and make some money for their institution and I would pay.
