Print Ready exhibitions provide a small survey of contemporary self publishing in a gallery setting. This exhibition includes a wide assortment of art books and zines which incorporate: drawing, hand lettering, collage, hand binding, unique alterations and experimentation with print technology.
Print Ready was started in order to promote the work of artists experimenting with self-publishing zines and books. The aim is to foster additional support for artists working within the versatile medium of self-publishing. Print Ready is a non-profit project that hosts book and zine launches, in addition to large group exhibitions. Their office is located in Vancouver at the Dynamo Arts Association. You can find more info on this event on their Facebook page.
