CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 5/5/2017
May 5-7, ARTBOOK and Koenig Books join forces at Frieze New York! Last week, one jam-packed shipping container made its way from Germany to Randall's Island, carrying treasures unknown. Six more pallets arrived from domestic publishers big and small. In addition to rare limited editions, out-of-print titles and signed copies, our pop-up bookstore will carry hundreds of monographs, exhibition catalogs, theory titles and more. Scroll down for our schedule of signings with 'Who's Afraid of Contemporary Art?' author Kyung An, 'Could Have, Would Have, Should Have' author Tiqui Atencio, '100 Secrets of the Art World' authors Thomas Girst and Magnus Resch, artists Robert Barry and Sara Greenberger Rafferty and poet Claudia Rankine, and take a peek at just a few of our most exciting rare books. Please note that our booth will feature numerous rare and signed books and limited editions by each of the following artists: Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Gilbert & George, William N. Copley, Robert Crumb and Richard Tuttle, whose newest artist's book, 'You Never See the Same Color Twice,' by Getty Research Institute Publications, will be available for the first time at our bookstore.

12 offset prints, watercolored on paper
Prints sized 42 x 29.5 cm and 29.5 x 42 cm

Published by Walther König, 100 pages, offset printed, paperback 24 x 20 cm

Limited edition of 90, signed and numbered. Eleven 8 × 9.75-inch folders, sixteen cards and two letterpress sheets, enclosed in a cloth-wrapped, foil-stamped clamshell box. 62 color illustrations.
Debuting at Frieze New York! Richard Tuttle, in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute and Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, has created an artist’s book exploring color. It grew out of his research in the Special Collections while he was artist in residence at the Getty Research Institute. 'You Never See The Same Color Twice' consists of ten folders, each dedicated to a theme. The folders include original writings by Tuttle and images of artworks and period documents. With these selections and texts, he departs from concrete notions of color, instead proposing a boundless vision of “real” color.
Gilbert & George: 'Side by Side,' 1971
First edition of 600, hand-marbled cover, published by Walther König, 192 pages, hardcover, 5 1/2 x 8 inches
First published in 1971 in an edition of 600 copies, "Side by Side" was the first artists' book by Gilbert & George. The book functions as a manifesto of Gilbert & George’s views on life and art, expressed through texts and images which "together represent a contemporary sculpture novel."
Sophie Calle: Moi Aussi, 2012
Limited Edition of 60 copies signed by the artist, with print. Japanese binding, red velvet cover, satin ribbons, 80 pages, 7.5 x 9 inches
All signed by the artist and enriched with a digital print of the original oak tree offered by HM Queen Elizabeth II From England to President François Mitterrand 26 October, 1984, for his birthday.
