In other big book-related news, Printed Matter’s annual Art Book Fair returns this week. Debuting virtually, the fair looks poised to offer all the wondrous wares and programming we’ve come to expect from it — without the long lines and busy crowds with which we’ve long had to make our peace.
Happy reading.
