PUBLISHED BY NEW YORK
Published by New York is the second of a series of beautifully printed zines that document the publishers of books in the library of Jonathan Monks Berlin studio. As an avid collector of artist books he has tried to curate his shelves into sections or individual cities. Artist, museum or publisher create the selective process. Initially the idea was to co-publish a book with hundreds of different publishers each one an equal part of the project a book made up of colophons, different fonts, designers, distributors etc. Brilliant, but logistically impossible. Maybe this is a zine in the form of a proposal or a proposal in the form of a zine ? Kodoji Press is happy to bring you Published by New York specifically made for The NY Art Book Fair.
