ARTBOOK @ The LA Art Book Fair

Join us February 24-26 at Printed Matter's LA ART BOOK FAIR 2017!

Opening preview is Thursday, February 23 from 6–9 pm.

Our booth features new and rare artists books from a range of international publishers.

We are sharing our booth with Gottingen-based STEIDL, one of the world’s most renowned publishers of art and photography books. Founded and run by master printer Gerhard Steidl, the imprint is known for its exacting attention to detail and perfection in print quality.

Held at The Geffen Contemporary at MoCA, the LA ART BOOK FAIR is the companion fair to the NEW YORK ART BOOK FAIR, held every fall in New York. Last year, 27,000 artists, book buyers, collectors, dealers, curators, independent publishers, and other enthusiasts attended the NY ART BOOK FAIR at MoMA PS1 in Queens.

The LA ART BOOK FAIR is free and open to the public.
