The View from the NY Art Book Fair Zine Tent: 8 Zines You Want to Know About | Books - Hyperallergic

"This year’s zinesters brought some of the most playful, provocative, and interesting items on display, and here are some notable picks" says Deena ElGenaidi, writer and editor living in Brooklyn.

Upon entering Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair at the Museum of Modern Art Ps1 for the first time, I was immediately overwhelmed by the sheer size of the event, with room after room of books, publishers, and artworks. The program alone, with its long list exhibitors, was enough to make my head spin. But after doing a quick walk-through of the space and learning a bit about the different rooms in this old public school building, I ventured towards the domed, white tents outside.

Having arrived somewhat early, I witnessed the bustling energy of people setting up their tables and preparing for the night ahead. If you do end up at the NY Art Book Fair this weekend, I highly recommend checking out the following tables and their incredible zines.
