Friends with Books – A Different Kind of Book Fair

Doppell Edition – Eosmin

Are you friends with books? Do you have friends with books? By books I don’t mean Kafka, Harry Potter or Steven King. I’m talking about really special books with artsy content to contemplate about and wonder. Books that look really cool in any place inside of your apartment. Books that will inspire you to create collages. Books that will make you chuckle but you don’t know why. Books that will make your imagination go bananas, like in a Wes Anderson film. Books that when you by one only you and maybe 3-4 other really cool people will own. Welcome to the world of art book publishing.

Friends with Books is a new book fair dedicated to exactly these wonderful types of books. It will happen for the second time this weekend a Hamburger Bahnhof. Not only will you be able to flip through and purchase the art books of over 100 artists and publishers from all over the world, you will also be able to join discussions, readings, book signings and performances. After the jump we have selected some of the most interesting looking books from the Berlin-based participating publishers, along with the details about the fair.
