Established in 1976, Printed matter is the world’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to the promotions of publications made by artists!

Printed Matter was developed in response to the rising amount of interest in publications made by artists. Providing a space for artists to explore book form as an artistic medium, Printed Matter presented an opportunity for experimentation and circulation of artwork outside of the norms of the gallery system. 

With over 5,000 artists represented, Printed Matter is a bookworm’s wonderland. Lose track of time browsing through the wide selection of books, including hard to find titles old and new. Drop by Printed Matter for a laid back afternoon browsing incredibly affordable books that could keep you company during your stay!
