Before the McCarren Park Pool is inundated with sweaty swimmers, stop by for the Brooklyn Art Book Fair on May 19–20. This is, surprisingly, the fair’s first edition. Coproduced by the free art school BHQFU and the curatorial and publishing project Endless Editions, the fair will feature 43 exhibitors, including publishing houses, artists, and curatorial collectives. There’ll be plenty of local representation, like Desert Island Comics, and in addition to perusing and purchasing artists’ books, you can also learn about the process of printing them at Soft City’s booth. I’m especially curious to flip through CUNY’s Lost & Found journal, for which doctoral students research forgotten or overlooked texts by 20th-century writers.
When: Friday, May 19, 7–9pm; Saturday, May 20, 12–6pm
Where: McCarren Park Play Center (776 Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
