A Visual Artist's Guide to Estate Planning is a comprehensive handbook designed to assist artists in planning their estates. The book has two main parts and an appendix. Part I introduces general estate planning concepts and offers practical advice and a discussion of legal issues raised by artists at an estate planning conference. Part II consists of an in-depth discussion of policy and law on selected issues of estate planning and administration for visual artists.

This 2008 Supplement Update, by Barbara Hoffman and other contributors, discusses in greater detail recent developments with respect to artist's foundations and other significant changes in the tax and other laws.
