I have had an artbook bought for me, of an artist on dA, but not from dA. But there are several artists I would love to have artbooks from, budget permitting.

I did once, and I might consider it it again if I happen to have money, even though that previous bought was terrible because I didn't get the book until half a year after I paid even if it was supposed to be shopped right away. It was a terrible experience, and the book - though very nice - was not worth it.

I did buy one once and I absolutely loved it, and at some point when the budget permits I will buy more! :)

Not necessarily from dA, but e.g. I'd buy 1000 words if I had the chance. Also, my sis always orders random art books and we rarely regret it. there are also pixiv art books going around :)

I did, some weren't as good as I expected, but I wouldn't avoid buying artbooks just because of that.

I bought two doujins (if that counts) from one artist here on dA and, so far, I'm pleased with both visual and literal part :)

I have bought art books from artists who are on Deviantart, but they where not ones sold/offered on Deviantart. They where purchased at conventions or on the artists website. All where worth it.
