Art book [ ärt \ ˈbu̇k] noun. 1. An artistic journey through printed pages. 2. A work of art encapsulating experiments in typography and stationery. 3. An object – for some almost a simulacrum – which may cause side effects. See: collectibles, bookshelves always overflowing.
Books that recount works of art, books that become works of art in their own right, experiments with typography and paper. A huge shared narrative revolving around books, and in particular the moment in which they meet artistic research.
The publishers taking part in the event have been selected both from Italy and abroad. What sets them apart is the quality and originality of the products they create, both in terms of content and on a graphic and aesthetic level.
At BASE from 16 to 18 November, the second annual #TheArtChapter, the fair dedicated to experimentation and editorial research in the area of modern art, taking place during BookCity Milano and Photo Vogue Festival a Milano.
