Looking for something to do this weekend in Los Angeles? Check out Printed Matter’s Third Annual LA Art Book Fair at the Geffen Contemporary/ Moca. Thursday is preview night and the show runs through Sunday. The LA Art Book Fair is billed as a unique event for artists books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals and zines from more than 250 artists, small press, and indy publishers from more than 20 countries. Two exhibitors you want to check out are Ed Luce, the guy behind Wuvable Oaf and the folks from MASSIVE with a book out with the same name.
Links to show information and a complete exhibitor list can be found here. Admission is $10 for preview night and free the remaining show dates.
On the left is Luce’s new book, The Covers, which debuts at the Art Book Fair. It’s a set of 25 ready-to-frame art prints (ranging in size from 11″ x 14″ – 11″ x 17″), featuring covers from the first five years of Oaf comics! It can also be ordered for $25 plus shipping from the Oaf site. On the right is Massive, a survey covering the art of nine gay Japanese men who make gay manga for gay men.
