Printed Matter hosts a printed fair

Max and I visited Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair last weekend at PS 1 where we had a busy time browsing among the many exhibitioners in attendance. The world of alternative print matter is alive and well. (The advent of the laser printer has been a great advancement  for book artists in the digital age.) Among the interesting presenters we met was Michalis Pichler, whose 26 Gasoline Stations is a witty re-interpretation of  Ed Rushca's classic work by the same name.  His books were beautifully executed. Lots of good, understated and wry design. We came back exhausted by so much stimulus. Still, I saw no letterpress. I probably didn't look hard enough.
