Printed Matter presents the third annual LA Art Book Fair, from January 29 through February 1, 2015, at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Downtown LA. 

Free and open to the public, Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair is a unique event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines presented by more than 250 presses, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from over 20 countries.

The LA Art Book Fair is the companion fair to the NY Art Book Fair, held every fall in New York City. Over 35,000 artists, book buyers, collectors, dealers, curators, independent publishers, and other enthusiasts attended the NY Art Book Fair in 2014.

Entry to the Preview will cost $10, proceeds going to support LAABF15. The first 2,000 visitors to pre-pay online or to pay at the door (while supplies last) will receive a Ticket Edition by artist Edie Fake.
