The New York Art Book Fair can be a rather overwhelming experience, packed with ephemera and elbow-to-elbow crowds. With all the various book launches and events, to help make sure you're not going to miss something awesome at this year's NYABF, here's a list of the exhibitors we highly recommend you check out.

Obviously go see Thurston Moore play at the preview tonight (Thursday). At 7pm at Printed Matter's booth you can pick up a signed copy of Moore's new lyrics chapbook, published by Ecstatic Peace Library.
Johan Rosenmunthe, Tectonic, 2014; SPBH Editions.
London-based but internet-ubiquitous Self Publish Be Happy is a must-see of course. Their new publication on SPBH Editions features Danish artist and co-founder of Lodret Vandret, Johan Rosenmunthe, along with a section of Mary Anne Atwood’s text ‘A Suggestive Inquiry into the Hermetic Mystery and Alchemy’.
Pär Axell, Impact, 2014; Lodret Vandret.
Peter Happel Christian, Half Wild, 2014; Conveyor Editions.
Conveyor Arts will be launching photographer Peter Happel Christian's new book, Half Wild, at 3pm on Saturday. Word has it you can also pick up the latest issue of the semi-annual Conveyor Magazine there, which hasn't officially launched.
Ahndraya Parlato & Gregory Halpern, EAST OF THE SUN, WEST OF THE MOON, 2014; Études Books N°8.
Paris- and NYC-based Études Books will be launching the latest three installments of its Blue Books collection. Book signings will take place from 3-4 pm each day of the fair.
The opposite of slick and glossy, Carnage NYC, SubCulture, and EkgLabs have banded together for a booth featuring graff zines, posters, stickers, and other accessories. Pick up SIGNAL! here for a lo-fi, high-thought magazine on issues related to graffiti and street art.
From Sasha Archibald's article in the latest issue of Cabinet.
You probably already know that Cabinet is awesome, but in case you don't, we recommend you check out the magazine at the NYABF.
There's too many to mention of course, so we'll have more coverage from the NYABF floor through the weekend.
