Long Live Print: Report from NY Book Fair 2017

If you’ve ever been skeptical about the future of print — you’re about to change your mind at NY Art Book Fair that’s held yearly at the MoMA’s P.S.1 outpost in Queens. Hundreds of publishers, artists and book connoisseurs from around the world exhibit their best new titles. I stopped by to browse through some of them.
