Among all the things that fall brings, our most anticipated event is always Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1. This year we're launching our fall issue, BOMB 141, at the fair in D.A.P.'s newly expanded bookstore, ARTBOOK, on the ground floor of PS1. Join BOMB staff and friends to celebrate the issue and for readings by contributors Alan Gilbert, Harmony Holiday, and Lucy Ives.

We'll also have our usual NYABF table, #N61, with a couple exclusives and surprises. Come by and say hello!
