From +81: “Vol.82 is all about what makes books great. Kicking things off is a presentation of four book artists whose creations perform both their originally literary functions while also serving as objet d’ art. Following this is big selection of unique artist books from independent publishers and zine makers like those that have become a leading trend in the industry today. We also have a pick of 44 bookstores from around the world that everyone should visit at least once.”
