Printed Mat­ter in the East Vil­lage

NEW YORK’S LEG­ENDARY

Broken Pencil - - Table Contents - by Jonathan Valelly …

zine and art­book shop Printed Mat­ter is ex­pand­ing its foot­print with a new satel­lite lo­ca­tion em­bed­ded in the Swiss In­sti­tute in the East Vil­lage. The shop, which puts on the New York Art Book Fair, is well-known for its high-brow and ex­per­i­men­tal col­lec­tion of pub­li­ca­tions. With this move to the his­toric heart of Man­hat­tan’s art, punk, and ac­tivist scenes comes a unique op­por­tu­nity to re­con­nect with the scrap­pier roots of DIY zines and print­mak­ing. Di­rec­tor Max Schu­mann is a long­time East Vil­lage res­i­dent and “def­i­nitely plugged into the an­ar­chist, fold-and-sta­ple, punk zine-mak­ing cul­ture,” said Sean Fuller, who man­ages the new lo­ca­tion, adding that they in­tend to open the space to the neigh­bour­hood through com­mu­nity work­shops and events. “We hope to keep the DIY East Vil­lage aes­thetic alive.” The new lo­ca­tion opens June 21.
