Book the Book

A small Art Book Fair at the Communication Space Školská 28 and Fotograf Gallery. Organizers have focused this event on small, smaller, non-commercial and independent publishing houses: books, fan-zines and minor publications published by small publishing houses. The event also includes a section devoted to the presentation and sale of artistic books by contemporary artists, photographers, illustrators and typographers. The two-day event will be accompanied by lectures and discussions involving the persons involved in publishing (publishing houses, authors, graphic designers, et. al.). A topic for discussion will also be the current situation with publications on art, a look at future prospects and e-publishing options.

The event’s special guest will be Alexis Zavialoff, founder of Motto Distribution, who will move his Berlin-based shop to Prague for two days. He represents more than 100 small publishing houses from all over the world. Czech publishing houses that will present their works include, for example: tranzit, Divus, BiggBoss, Komfortmag, Fra, the Moravian Gallery in Brno, the Oldschool Project, Ausdruck Books, Kant, Živel, Yinachi, Fotograf magazine and others. The event will include a special section devoted to authored artistic books and zines by contemporary artists.
