AB/Z Fair Box Set, 2020. Collection of 18 artists’ publications, one handmade, handprinted jhola bag, one Risograph printed poster. 19 x 12 x 2 inches. Edition of 5.

AB/Z Fair, a dynamic “micro” art book fair of pioneering creative publishing from A(rtists’) B(ooks) to Z(ines), was presented by Booklyn and the Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair. AB/Z’s provided an affordable and intimate Manhattan venue to encourage new audiences, collectors, curators and librarians, and provides the general public access to artists and presses that previously have not had book fair venues in Manhattan. The Fair had 20 tables of esoteric bookmakers in a wide variety of media including aquatint, collage, fine letterpress, hand-painted, photo-art, screenprint, and risograph. AB/Z was held at The John Melser Charrette School (PS3) in New York City, Feb. 21-23, 2020.
