Art Show: James Franco, Werkplaats Typografie And Japanese Punk Zines At The NY Art Book Fair

The greatest lesson learned at this year’s NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 is that Friday is by far the best day to go to the weekend-long event if you’re more interested in looking at books than people. (The latter is fun, but not when it’s pouring outside, and a glut of bedraggled hipsters congeal in the corridors of PS1). This year seemed somehow leaner, with the museum’s September 11 exhibition cordoning off a large section of the exhibition space. Still, some of the highlights included a facsimile living room filled with printed ephemera from the Dutch design school, Werkplaats Typografie, some interesting rare- and limited- edition books and objects from Art Metropole in Toronto, a Japanese punk photography zine from Harper Levine Books and, of course, it wouldn’t be an ART EVENT without James Franco, who contributed a new edition to the SF-based The Thing Quarterly.
