This is the fifth annual LA Art Book Fair (which I missed last year, darn), and best of all, its Free!
Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair is a unique event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines presented by more than 300 presses, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from over 20 countries. A very diverse collection of photographic and art books. If you have not been to this event before, it will blow your mind.
A curated cross-section of photo-based books and magazines, this year’s Focus: Photography has expanded, and includes: ARÖK (Lithuania), Goodbye Ranch (Arizona), SUPER LABO (Japan), Bemojake (UK), Remote Photobooks (New Zealand), The Heavy Collective (Australia). This should be interesting!
Slow Culture & Deadbeat Club (a SoCal group of film users) are proud to present “THE FOTOMAT”. A pop-up installation in the Geffen courtyard paying homage to vintage drive-thru photo kiosks with actual 24 hour film developing services. Photographer friends will be guest clerks and sell exclusive prints to the fair. Also available will be film & photography accessories, zines, photo books and other photo related ephemera.
As always, a fun and entertaining event and I hope to see you there and if you see us, don’t forget to give a big shout-out ;- )
