‘Printing Plant’ is a fabulous but intimate and bespoke three-day art-book fair organized 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 being produced there. The fair features a remarkable selection of artist editions, multiples, catalogs, books, monographs, periodicals and zines that are generally unavailable in bookstores.
The unique setting and history of Looiersgracht 60 will provide a fitting location for the fair. Prior to its current use as an exhibition center it was home to a cardboard and paper factory, making it an ideal location for ‘Printing Plant’. Filling 750 square meters of exhibition space, the fair invites visitors to learn more about art-book publishing from sixty carefully selected independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, galleries and printmakers who will be showcasing their work throughout the weekend.
