tokyo art book fair

Naysayers have been predicting the death of print media for years, but what the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly. That’s to say, walk into the Tokyo Art Book Fair and be deluged from all sides by the best and boldest of zines, photobooks, catalogues, and whatever can be creatively filed as something with a binding. Now in its eighth year and extended to four days, 300 participants are expected to showcase in Asia’s largest art book fair, alongside a high-culture schedule of exhibitions, screenings, and panels. This year also brings publishers and artists from the featured country, Brazil, and marks the inauguration of the Steidl Book Photobook Award. If this is death, it’s the best-looking kind there is.
