this past weekend was the new york art book fair.
i went both friday and saturday, the fair was open from thursday to sunday. saturday was swamped.
ps 1 used to be a public school, so it's rather rather large. its also my favorite museum, i love it more than MoMA.
imagine, if you will, three full floors of art books, zines, publisher companies, ect all having little booths with goodies and ect all to be looked at and for sale. there were even some digital publishers there, which seemed so interesting. vaguely meta even?
when i went on saturday, as i snaked my way through the mazelike crowd, i heard two germans talking about hipsters in german- apparently hipster is an international word. it was funny.
though people were crowded outside to hear a band not really worth hearing.
then again, i'm completely biased. i love books, how they are bound, the paper stock used, type faces. and i especially love art books- the photographs, the layouts, ect.
what i wore both days
L- white shirt- lacoste, skirt with suspenders- phillip lim, shoes from macys, topshop tights
R- thrifted cape, marni skirt, givenchy tights, repetto shoes, lyell sweater
