Here's a couple of art book happenings in NYC.
The NY Art Book Fair takes place next weekend, October 2-4 at PS1. The free event is organized by Printer Matter, "the world's greatest source for artists' publications." The Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, and independent artist/publishers, including architecturally minded publishers D.A.P., PIN-UP, and Princeton Architectural Press.

Last week saw the opening of the Gagosian Shop at 988 Madison Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The ground floor space designed by Daniel Rowen Architects with MN Design displays the numerous art books, posters, prints and other wares in a sparse environment resembling the Gagosian galleries elsewhere in town.
