New York Art Book Fair

Posted in Exhibitions, Publications by JS on September 8, 2016


Printed Matter, Inc. presents the eleventh annual NY Art Book Fair, from September 16 to 18, 2016, at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens. A preview will be held on the evening of Thursday, September 15. You’ll find me and my books on the second floor at the table I share with Elisabeth Tonnard (N 52).
Free and open to the public, the NY Art Book Fair is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines. The 2015 fair featured over 350 booksellers, antiquarians, artists, institutions and independent publishers from twenty-eight countries, and was attended by more than 35,000 people. (That’s about 20.000 visitors too many. People who do not want to buy books are encouraged to stay away.)

[logo] SUCKS

Posted in Publications by JS on July 12, 2016

Logo Sucks1

There are two kinds of things in the world, things that are ok and things that suck. Many of the things that suck are strictly speaking not really things. They are companies or services. It’s not a big surprise that many of these are related to the internet. These amorphous entities are the pillars of the digital universe. Amazon sucks, Facebook sucks, Google sucks, and so do all the other companies that infiltrated modern life and that seem to be so indispensable in present age. For the contemporaries who share the feeling that these things suck I made a set of prints. Each print is based on the logo of one of the entities that suck. They are linocuts printed in editions of 20 copies.
18 linocuts in a semi-archival box, hand-printed on 120 gr acid-free dorée paper, 29.5 x 21 cm each, stamped with archival ink. Edition of 20 copies, 450 € (+ shipping by registered mail), available in the shop (price to increase as edition sells).
