Join us at ABC at Paper Machine, 6330 St Claude, for a special presentation and talk by Vamp and Tramp Booksellers, the pre-eminent artists’ booksellers in the United States. Bill and Vicky of Vamp and Tramp travel around the country with suitcases full of books made by hundreds of different artists. The books they represent range from $4,000 letterpress-printed, hand-bound masterpieces, to $50 offset-printed democratic multiples. They sell these magnificent books to almost every special collection library in the country. Come hear their stories from the road! They will discuss what makes an artist’s book a bestseller, what collectors are interested in acquiring, and about their genuine love for books as art. They will also bring many examples of the artists’ books they represent, for us to touch and interact with. Come see and touch the books that are currently popular and exciting within this expanding field of art!
