DRIFT STATION

Bookstore

Bookstore is the result of an international open call for artist books, zines, comics, and other unusual publications. For two months, Drift Station became a temporary bookstore and reading library where the public could browse and purchase these printed artworks.

Totaling over 1,000 printed works, Bookstore included works ranging from handcrafted artist books to photocopied pamphlets to print-on-demand books from all across the world. This exhibition represents the uniqueness and idiosyncrasy that can exist in print, perhaps the most egalitarian and inclusive art forms.

All work was for sale for under $30, and many of the books were free. Sales from Bookstore went directly to the artists with a portion of the proceeds going towards future programming at Drift Station.
