Limited editions, rare, signed and out of print books, new releases, classic backlist and advance copies are all part of the ARTBOOK & König Books bookstore at Frieze New York, on view through Sunday. Occasionally we're asked why we go to such lengths to set up such an over-the-top, superabundant specialty art bookstore for just four days... on an island... very far from our home bases in downtown New York, London and Cologne. Either we're crazy, or we just love books. What can we say?
Visit our bookstore, curated and run by ARTBOOK's Skuta Helgason and König Books' Franz König, at Frieze New York - now through Sunday!
We are proud to offer a large selection of signed books. Above, ceramicist Grayson Perry signing Playing to the Gallery, best-selling Seven Days in the Art World author Sarah Thornton signing her new book, 33 Artists in 3 Acts and artist Barbara Kasten signing copies of her new retrospective catalogue, Stages while dropping by our bookstore on opening night. Thornton will do an official signing in our booth Saturday afternoon at 3PM. Come by!
Our bookstore is located at the South Entrance to the fair, beside the VIP lounge. Above, a selection of rare limited editions. To learn more, see our announcement.
Stop by to browse our rare book selection. We are always happy to open the vitrines so that rare book lovers can see the books up close.
