Some of the publications that we have on view at the fair:
The book The Academy of the Sublime shows a selection of Erik Odijk's work from 2005 to the present. The book consists of three separate 'magazines' and illustraties the three different disciplines in the artist's oeuvre by means of 150 illustrations. The separate magazines are combined in a single large format folder. The large format allows the viewer/reader to disappear into Odijk's work, as it were, because the details of the work are clearly visible in this way.

Koen Taselaar. Rollable Ramblings is the first comprehensive publication on the textile work of Koen Taselaar (Rotterdam 1986). The majority of Rollable Ramblings comprises reproductions of his tapestries, and zoom-ins on them. This visual component is complemented with essays shedding light on the works, and on the history of textile art in general, written by art critic Katalin Herzog.
