Thank you to everyone who made it to our booth in the zine tent at this year's New York Art Book Fair, including the Gorilla Girls, (we miss you Gary). This year, we showcased the work of Zebadiah Keneally, Audrey Ryan, new works by Stephanie Land, Phil Sanders and presented fundraiser editions for our ongoing collaboration with Ashley May. Congratulations to all of our contributors to SPRTS, specifically those artists featured in our most recent issue: Pierre Chaumont, Panayiotis Terzis, Nora Rodriguez, Christopher Gideon, Andrew Marshall, Audrey Ryan and Anna-Marie Settine.
For all of your organization, ambition and support we would like to give special thanks to our homies at Printed Matter, Inc. You guys killed it.
We will be showing our work again soon at the Odds & Ends Book Fair at Yale University Art Gallery on December 5th, and at the LA Art Book Fair in January/February 2015.
