The long-running festival celebrates the diversity of print publications from the zine to the screen and everything in between.

The twelfth annual New York Book Art Fair will take place this weekend at the Museum of Modern Art’s Queens-based contemporary space PS1. Hosted by the book arts institution Printed Matter, the fair will see hundreds of small presses, artists, publishers, magazines, and others gather into one space to celebrate the art of print.

According to Printed Matter, the festival will include “an ever-growing variety of exhibitors – from the zinesters in (XE)ROX & PAPER + SCISSORS and the Small Press Dome representing publishing at its most innovative and affordable, to rare and antiquarian dealers offering out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history, plus the NYABF-classic Friendly Fire, focused on the intersections of art and activism.”

Also taking place, the announcements states, will be an a bill flush with special events and lectures, including “the Classroom, a curated engagement of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions, for the eighth year running, as well as The Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference(CABC), in its tenth year, featuring two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture.”
