Once again, Printed Matter did a formidable job in presenting this year’s NY Art Book Fair last weekend at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens. For the fifth year in a row, it was free and open to the public, with more than 16,000 people in attendance. About 200 international booksellers, rare book dealers, artists, and publishers from 20 countries offered up their wares. This is truly the best art book fair there is, with an overwhelming amount of participants and programming: project rooms, readings, workshops, screenings, performances, and panels throughout the entire weekend.
If you’ve not yet been to the NY Art Book Fair, plan on it for next year!
December’s First Thursday is opening night at Paper Hammer, a shop featuring modern journals and paper goods, hand-picked housewares, and select vintage objects, all perfect for holiday gifts. The venerable Randy Hayes is hanging a new series inspired by Kyoto; Tieton Farm and Creamery is bringing fresh, artisan goat cheese; and Tieton Cider Works is providing libations. We will also be showing off the furniture design and construction work of Kerry Quint from Mighty Tieton Construction. We’ll have grab bags with handmade surprises for the first fifty people through the door.
