AbeBooks is pleased to partner with the twelfth annual NY Art Book Fair, the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines. The event, presented by Printed Matter, is taking place September 22 to 24, 2017, at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens.

Free and open to the public, the 2017 NY Art Book Fair will feature over 370 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries. Exhibitors include zinesters, innovative and affordable publishing houses, and rare and antiquarian dealers offering an unparalleled selection of out-of-print books and ephemera from art and artist book history.

If you’d like to get first pick of the fair’s exciting inventory, be sure to buy a ticket for the opening night preview on Thursday, September 21, from 6 to 9 pm. The evening will feature special live performances on the steps of PS1 by Upstate Music, BLONDES, and Alexis Taylor (HOT CHIP). Entry to the preview costs only $10, with proceeds going to support NYABF17. The first 2,000 visitors to pre-pay online or to pay at the door (while supplies last) will receive a Ticket Edition by Emma Kohlmann.

The Classroom, sponsored by AbeBooks, will return for its eighth year of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led interventions. Visitors will also have a chance to attend the tenth annual Contemporary Artists’ Book Conference, featuring two full days on emerging practices and issues within art-book culture.
