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.”
— Lodret Vandret
