This week for Five Jobs, we bring you full-time careers related to books be it designing them, publishing them, or selling them. Let’s take a look:

Exhibitions and Communications Manager at Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation (New York, NY)
How to Apply

The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation, Inc. (or LLGAF for short) wants someone who can sell books at their museum store as well as mounting exhibitions, promoting LLGAF programming, and overseeing the internship program. Oh, and greeting guests to the museum. Perfect for a jack of all trades.

Book Selling Specialist at MoMA Design and Book Store (New York, NY)
How to Apply

The MoMA Design store is looking for someone with a minimum of two years retail experience, a working knowledge of art books, and availability to work afternoons and weekends. We see the employee discount as a major perk to this job.

Assistant Account Manager at Bridgeman Art Library International (New York NY)
How to Apply

For someone with a degree in art history. While not really related to books per se, you would work for a company with the words “Art Library” in the title. Bridgeman Art Library International licenses fine art images for reproduction, and they are looking for someone to act as a liaison with their European office as well as with museums and contemporary artists on rights clearances. This job offers health coverage!

Associate Art Director for Books and Special Projects Division at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia How to Apply

A good lead for those with previous publishing experience. You’ll be working to meet photography, production, and copy deadlines along with assisting the Art Director. You get to help with photo shoots, which should be fun since we assume you would be around artists of some sort.

Senior Editor/Curator for MGD Services
How to Apply

Care for kid’s stuff? This job at MeeGenius involves reading manuscripts, signing on authors, and seeking publishers to curate a catalog of compelling work for children. That’s right—you get to work in children’s fiction! MGD has a focus on digital media, too, so you would be working to further develop online children’s books.
