At the opening of Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair tonight, we’re launching a zine to help you navigate the fair and its many treasures. As a bonus, we’re also including a special “The Asshole Is the Revolution” poster by AA Bronson and his collaborator Keith Boadwee. AA Bronson has long been a pioneer in the field of art publishing as a member of the influential General Idea artist collective, a curator of Queer zines, and as the founding director of Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair.

If you see the Hyperallergic team, please say hi and ask for a zine. It will also be distributed at the fair in various locations.

For those of you who can’t make it to the fair, you can download a PDF (15.8MB) version. We will release zine #2 on Saturday, also at the NY Art Book Fair.

If you’re interested in what’s in this first edition, here is the table of contents:

  • Comic by Jack Sjogren
  • An interview with Paul Soulellis of the Printed Web
  • Zine Reviews:
    • Guide to Being Alone by Julia Arrendondo
