The fifth-annual NY Art Book Fair is around the corner, and organizer Printed Matter (NYC's premiere art bookstore) have put together an exciting lineup of readings, signings, limited editions and more from an intriguing cadre of artists and international presses. The world's biggest art book fair, the three-day-long events at MoMA PS1 showcase some of the brightest minds in contemporary publishing.

Highlights include artist Leidy Churchman's lobby installation—a massive set of facsimile book paintings on wood that depict "artists' publications from the last hundred years"—as well as a special gallery project from San Francisco's Goteblüd zine shop, which will present an exhibit of more than 600 Riot Grrrl zines.
