Printing Plant is a fabulous but intimate and bespoke 3-day art-book fair organised by Looiersgracht 60. Artistic print culture has a rich narrative in Amsterdam’s history and Printing Plant offers a new and much-needed platform for the progressive publications that are being produced. A remarkable selection of artist editions, multiples, catalogues, books, monographs, periodicals and zines that are generally unavailable in bookstores will be presented. The unique housing, and history, of Looiersgracht 60 will be utilised to correspond to the etiquette of the fair. Prior to its current use as an exhibition centre Looiersgracht 60 was home to a cardboard and paper factory, making it an ideal location for Printing Plant. Filling 750 m² of exhibition space, the fair invites visitors to learn more about art book publishing from 70 carefully selected independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, galleries and printmakers who will be showcasing their works throughout the weekend.
