Art book lovers of the world will be in for a treat this summer during their art trips to Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood this summer. Yesterday, Chelsea’s David Zwirner Gallery open its second annual summer pop-up bookstore for a two week run ending Friday, August 5.

According to the gallery, the temporary bookshop will include a selection of rare and out-of-print books, signed artist catalogues and monographs, DVDs, posters, collectible show cards, and more. Among the multiples on sale will be ceramic plates by Marcel Dzama, signed copies of Perlstein by Michael Riedel, films by Raymond Pettibon, posters by Christopher Williams and documentary films about Alice Neel and Robert Crumb.

The shop will also be open late (until 8pm EST) on Thursday, July 28 for the second annual Chelsea Art Walk, which will take place across the art-borhood and include over 125 galleries and art institutions.

If you can’t make it for that late night, then you’ll need to know that Zwirner’s regular summer hours are Monday to Friday, 10am – 6pm, but note that the gallery is close on Saturdays for all of July and August.
