Printed Matter is Moving (and They Need Your Help)

capital-campaign-2-e501c992c32db0e7d1c875e520593a79Printed Matter, one of the most important organizations dedicated to artists’ books,  is moving to a new location that will double their square footage. Their new home on the corner of 11th Avenue and 26th Street will house their inventory of 15,000 publications and offer a community space for a variety of events. If you want to lend a hand, donate to their capital campaign.

Printed Matter is a resource comics micro-publishers should utilize more, myself included. A few comics micro-presses sell their publications at Printed Matter–Pegacorn Press, Domino, Desert Island, etc. But there could be more of a comics presence in their shop and at the two festivals the organize: NY Art Book Fair and LA Art Book Fair. I get the sense that Printed Matter tends towards comics that are non-narrative, arty, and hand-printed, so I would especially encourage publishers of those works to check them out. They have an open submission policy concerning works in their catalog.
