L.A. ART BOOK FAIR

DoPe Press is extremely happy to see the return of the Printed Matter–LA Art Book Fair to the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. We will be in section H07 on the main level.

Our newest publications—the journal PARIS LA 16: “The Fashion and Writing Issue” and the artist’s book …my life in the sunshine—Liz Craft 2006–2017—will be available, as well as our back catalogue and a selection of out-of-print titles.

For art and fashion lovers: In 2013 the artist Max Hooper Schneider created a silk scarf edition with P.P.M. Studio, Milan. We are offering the edition for purchase, as well as his last available original artwork from this series—dense, hand-drawn graphic lines recalling imaginative worlds and biologies—which will be part of a forthcoming book published by DoPe Press in September 2019.

In addition, we have invited some friends and family from Paris to share their publications and journals: Paraguay Press, MAY, and Profane.
