Free and open to the public, the Los Angeles Art Book Fair is a unique international event for artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, periodicals and zines presented by more than 220 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from twenty countries.

Fulton Ryder will present publications by John Dogg and Howard Johnson; unique books and Untitled Originals by Richard Prince, and naughty pulp paperbacks.
Zine World is a super-sized subsection of the Los Angeles Art Book Fair, featuring zinesters from home and abroad, together with three zine exhibitions. GSD: Skate Fate till Today begins from Gary Scott Davis’ early, ground-breaking zine publishing of the 80s. Zine Masters of the Universe features zines by Mark Gonzales, Ari Marcopoulos, Ray Pettibon, and Dash Snow. Bedwetter and Beyond is a survey of the artist books and zines of Los Angeles-based artist Christopher Russell.
The Los Angeles Art Book Fair is the companion fair to the New York Art Book Fair, held every fall in New York. Over 20,000 artists, book buyers, collectors, dealers, curators, independent publishers, and other enthusiasts attended the New York Art Book Fair in 2012.
