We love books!  And we love art books!  So of course we love that Printed Matter presents the first annual LA Art Book Fair, with an opening evening January 31, from 6-9pm, then running  February 1-3, at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. This is a unique event–with booths from 220 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from twenty-one countries–for book and art lovers to peruse artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines.

Look for the special section Zine World, featuring more than 80 zinesters from home and abroad.  Zine World also features three exhibitions: GSD: Skate Fate till Today begins from (inventor of the skate trick “boneless”) Gary Scott Davis’s early, ground-breaking zine publishing of the ’80s. Zine Masters of the Universe features Mark Gonzales, Ari Marcopoulos, Raymond Pettibon, and Dash Snow. Bedwetter and Beyond is a survey of the artists’ books and zines of Los Angeles-based artist Christopher Russell.
