Books and art, what could be better?
Ah, fall: when New York bestows upon its citizens a plethora of fests, fairs, and fun! The New York Art Book Fair, which closes tomorrow, is a lovely free-for-all at MoMA PS 1 in Long Island City (so convenient!).
L Magazine highlights 10 things you shouldn't miss; I'll just present a list of book and zine titles from the fair's presenters that I found poignant, amusing, or otherwise noteworthy:
- Once Upon No Time
- Wasted Time
- Scream at the Librarian
- Reduced to Silence
- Dirt, Detritus & Vermin
- Surprised by French Fries
- And If You Don't Go Crazy I'll Meet You Here Tomorrow
- Teenage Kissers
- You Make Me Want to Die in the Countryside
- A Fiesta of Tough Choices
- That Would Have Been Wonderful
- Footnotes to a Manual of Shaker Furniture
- Re-Reading the Riot Act
- Things Are Conspicuous in Their Absence
- An Eruption of Anti-Time
Buy a book -- or two, or three! Or just marvel at the wonderful design, the creamy pages, the odd tchotchkes on offer (such as the clip-in inchwide streak of gray hair, the Sontag: Feminist Hair Wear, yours for the low, low price of $25!), the hipster glasses, the plethora of limited-edition totes.
