About eight years ago, before J.Crew arrived in Toronto, I was having a conversation with a colleague at the University of Toronto. He was an Art History PhD from Ohio, who specialized in medieval Italian church frescoes and dressed like the quintessential preppy yuppie: buttoned-down gingham cotton shirts, khaki pants, Clarks. He complained about how he couldn’t shop in Toronto, because it hadn’t yet caught up with “civilization” by having a J.Crew. Recently, I found myse... [more]

The exhibitor list for this year’s LA Art Book Fair is very very long. So while I’d like to be able to say that this is a definitive top 10 list of booths to see, I can’t quite boast that. This is not a comprehensive list, rather, this is a highly subjective list, and as such, is skewed towards photography publications, publishers that I’m already familiar with (full disclosure: I’m married to an artist who has been featured in publications from Lodret Vandret and Conv...

Eva Prinz and Thurston Moore of Ecstatic Peace Library. Photograph © Tim Barber. Via Print Mag. Obviously go see Thurston Moore play at the preview tonight (Thursday). At 7pm at Printed... [more]

Polar vortex is only a distant poem to Los Angeles. Uttered on the news by harried meteorologists with names like strippers, the weather here is droughty for caring locals, simply sunny for everybody else. Yes, one of the many good reasons we live in Los Angeles is the definite lack of polar vortices. Not a few of the farflung, chilled by arctic weather, flock to Los Angeles this weekend, for one of our three fairs, two for art and one for art books. Not quite an Art Basel Miami Beach (mercifully)... [more]

Bibliophilia in Technophobia: A Dream Come True   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

The phenomenon of collecting loses its meaning as it loses its personal owner. –Walter Benjamin, “Unpacking my Library” Every artist should have a cheap line. It keeps art ordinary. –John Baldessari Let me tell you about a dream I had. It was a working-through, partially, of an 80’s era Twilight Zone I probably saw for the first time late at night on a television where there were still two knobs for UHF and VHF, re-ran on YouTube this past year. In the episode, words began to lose their m... [more]

The last time I got lunch with my friend, he was in the midst of sending applications to McDonalds. Ironically, he was the last person I ever expected this from. The friend I was eating lunch with is one of the most published artists I’ve ever met, with over ten book covers and at least three big solo releases of his own. But what has all that done for him? I mean, right now he’s telling me how it’s literally impossible to feed his family and he’s so desperate for money that in a few min... [more]

Let's be honest here. Fuck art fairs. Long live art book fairs. This weekend Printed Matter opens the first ever LA Art Book Fair. This is important. I want you to go. Art books are generally everything you wanted art to be but you can actually afford it. I don't know how much Laura Owen's paintings are going for, more than I make a year or five it's safe to assume, but her book, Fruits and Nuts is available at Ooga Booga for $500; each is its own unique beauty, handmade with love by the artist. ...

Adventures In Collecting and Publishing with Jim LindermanFigure Photography Magazine (Originally Published HERE) Last month we reviewed ‘Camera Club Girls’ by collector and publisher Jim Linderman; in the course of our communications about that article, I felt that I wanted to learn more about his adventures in self-publishing.
