Event — One Thousand Books


From April 10th to 13th, 2014 the second One Thou­sand Books Art Book Fest­iv­al takes place at Carls­berg Dis­trict in Copen­ha­gen…

28 inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers from all of North­ern Europe meet up in a super­mar­ket in Copen­ha­gen to sell books, greet their audi­ence face to face and to share ideas and strategies with one anoth­er. 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 aim of the event is to elev­ate the level, num­ber and qual­ity of art books com­ing out of our region by host­ing an event where play­ers in the field can meet, con­nect and share ideas and per­spect­ives on cur­rent issues in the frame of pub­lish­ing.”
