Once the purview of Riot Grrrls and amateur punk publishers, the zine today is a serious art form. And September 19–22 we’ll be checking out the best of the best, meeting artists, getting in on some workshops and picking up pieces of indie publishing history at The NY Art Book Fair. The free public event is hosted by Printed Matter, Inc. (an organization dedicated to preserving and promoting artists’ books, monographs and periodicals), so we know we’re in good hands.
Sept. 19–22 at MoMA PS1, 22–25 Jackson Ave. at 46th Ave., Long Island City, NY. Admission free. A sampling of the books by New York-based design firm Project Projects will be showing at the Book Fair.
