Selects from the San Francisco Art Book Fair
The crowds at art book fairs (which seem to grow with every passing year) can have two opposing effects on me. The first is total burnout, where the sheer number of visitors can turn me off looking at anything and the second is a tremendous optimism and energy from many people are interested and engaged with this kind of niche printed matter.
I was able to channel that second, more positive energy this past weekend and was really excited by the crowd that turned out for the San Francisco Art Book Fair held at Minnesota Street Project. For artists, designers, printers and publishers there is nothing better than being able to get your work off of people's screens and into their hands. From the stellar group of exhibitors we've pulled out some selects that are a combination of both old favorites and new discoveries.
