Got the book! Love it, of course. I will go through the whole book when I am having a cup of coffee on a less hectic day

Doing hard things like this compilation is always worthwhile. Big congratulations! Do more publications for the next decades to come

Love the book! Congratulations!

This book really inspired me to create more.

500 artists in Volume I! What a record! Your book is an essential reading of past and present artists with standardized entries. Good as a classroom resource

Carol Hoffman - October 6, 2023, 11:10 am

Wow, 500 artists in Volume I. I like the works of Pacita Abad, Fernando Amorsolo, Charlie Co, Lawrence Borsoto, Raul Arellano, Fabian dela Rosa...and so many others. When will Volume II come out? Will it coincide with the book launch? We hope so.

Charmaine Lagman - September 21, 2023, 10:18 am

This book is by no means insipid. Congratulations to the company. Quick reads for each of the pages in this dictionary of artists is hospitable.

The digest helped me see the works of the Filipino artists from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. A good compilation! Congratulations Artes de las Filipinas!

Book arrived at our school in Cavite and the students enjoy browsing through the pages. Photocopying of the pages is enjoyable to witness as a fine arts instructor. We can't wait for the Volume II. Please inform us of its release and book launch.

Great that several regional artists have been included that will never be contained in other artist books. Good wishes!

Juanito Vera Perez - June 17, 2022, 10:18 am

My copy has just been delivered. Lots of older artists are featured. Really Good! Book launch on the last volume?

Cesar Alejandro - June 15, 2022, 2:19 pm

Congratulations! More power to your upcoming books.

The book cover is not attractive at all. It needs a better design. For most interior designed homes, cover is just as important. Tom Ford's book was sold out fast yet it was so minimal and most interior designed homes have it on their center table. Sometimes just that and yet the contents is really just pictures of black and white of his works. But designed cover is beautiful. Today, he came out with the white book of the same design.

Tito Villanueva - June 2, 2022, 4:17 pm

I consider this book very comprehensive than other compilations I have seen. My compliments! Also realized that there are so many Amorsolo painters in the past.

Alex Narciso - May 27, 2022, 9:53 am

What a monumental task and accomplishment! 500 artists in Volume I!!! Whew! I don’t think any Philippine art book has managed to cover that much ground before. Thank you so much for including me in this book and congratulations!

Daniel dela Cruz - May 24, 2022, 1:37 pm

Congratulations! The coverage of this book goes beyond blue chip artists whose standing are often justified in auction sales. About time that past and unrecognized artists are given their due respect and attention as they too are the pillars of Philippine visual arts.

Cecilia Go - May 16, 2022, 10:55 am

Just got my copy of this book. Thank you for this book project. I'm looking forward to the next volume.

Chris Magbuhos - May 16, 2022, 10:55 am

Congratulations for the very nice book presentation! I acquired several paintings from estate sales and the information about these artists are in this book.
