In one thousand years we will have caused the earth’s axis to shift, aligning with Venus, and the polar icecaps will have melted into the sea, giving it a flavoring…, by Ben Tong: In alignment with the release of a related title published by Golden Spike Press, this framing of time will consist of the performance of a sound file that attempts to liquify form as wave. Along with the accompaniment of some ostensibly unrelated stories told by Ben Tong – The croissant, Star-Spangled-Banner, Mushrooms, Falling into a Ditch, A List of Some Very “Good” Products, and The Chair – is the artist’s ongoing search for the Higgs-Boson particle.
Here’s a selection of some new books we’re bringing to Printed Matter Inc.’s New York Art Book Fair this weekend. All are available on our website. Any orders made during the fair will be shipped late next week. We are super stoked for the fair!!! Find us camped out in the zine tent!

Please join us this Sunday evening for the grand opening of a new space in Boyle Heights, featuring 12 new large-scale paintings by Laura Owens in the main room, and the new second location of our store, Ooga Booga #2 in the front space!
