Best of NY Art Book Fair 2012

On the first weekend of October, just over the Pulaski Bridge, 283 independent book-sellers, indie publishers, artists, zine makers, and their enviably hip brethren gathered at the NY Art Book Fair to trade, sell, and share their mutual love of print.

As you can imagine, hundreds of booths, teaming with well-designed books and well-designed people who want tell you about their well-designed books can be overwhelming. It’s like browsing a great quaint, independent book store and then realizing that it happens to be the size of a three-story school-turned-museum with a massive tent that has even more books and is somehow filled with a crowd of the coolest, artsiest, all-around hippest people you’ve ever seen in your life (which is notable, considering you live in Brooklyn).  It’s mathematically impossible to see/browse/read it all, unless you spent three full days flipping pages, in which case you would probably work yourself into an art book induced frenzy (obsessively binding xerox copies of visual haikus until you can no longer eat or sleep).
