Fair — One Thousand Books

otb

From May 24th to 26th, 2013 One Thou­sand Books an inde­pend­ent art book fair with a nor­d­ic focus takes place at REMA 1000 Carls­berg in Copen­ha­gen…

More than 25 inde­pend­ent and micro pub­lish­ers from all of North­ern Europe meet in a super­mar­ket in Copen­ha­gen to sell books, meet their audi­ence IRL and to share ideas and strategies with each oth­er.

The isles of the super­mar­ket act as a visu­al and con­cep­tu­al back­drop as the art books are sold along­side every­day gro­cer­ies to bib­li­o­philes and the unex­pect­ing shop­per alike.

The goal is to elev­ate the level, num­ber and qual­ity of art books com­ing from the Nor­d­ic coun­tries by host­ing an event where the play­ers in the field can meet, con­nect and share ideas and per­spect­ives on cur­rent issues in the frame of pub­lish­ing.”
