I'm not Bill, but I would assume it means that the publisher will
advance a certain amount of royalties to the illustrator, the amount of
which will be withheld from the illustrator once the work is published.
A sort of loan. But if the work is never published, the illustrator
keeps the advance.
But what happens if the publisher decides not to publish at all? The
illustrator keeps the advance, and I assume there'd be some clause about
returning the artwork to the illustrator in that case? And should there
be a time limit for the publisher to do his number or get off the pot?
What would be reasonable?
Thanks for your response, Bill - that's something I hadn't even
I was starting to wonder if I'd scared off everyone!
