Printed Matter

Founded in 1976 by artists and art workers, Printed Matter is the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination, understanding, and appreciation of artists’ books and related publications. With a Chelsea storefront and East Village satellite location, Printed Matter is committed to bringing “artwork in book form” to the broadest public possible, and strengthening the possibilities of the medium. Beyond our distribution services, we offer many programs to artists and the public, including a publishing program, artists’ book-focused exhibitions, one of the world’s most extensive online catalogs and bibliographic resources for artists’ books, in-store and online discussions and performances, as well as Printed Matter's NY, LA, and Virtual Art Book Fair.
