Pop Up Bookshop
There will be a 3-day pop-up bookshop, with a fine selection of self-published books, and books from independent publishing houses from France, Poland, Italy, Sweden, Portugal, the US, Slovenia, Germany, the UK, Belgium, Spain, Japan, and more!
The selection will include many titles you have already heard about, and hopefully some you have missed and will be happy to discover, including hot-off-the-press titles, and also rare & out-of-print titles from 2013 and earlier.
Many of the books displayed will be available as signed copies, and a few pre-owned finds will be presented on the bookshop’s tables as well.
Booksigning sessions called « Apero-Signings » will be held on Friday evening (Nov. 14th – 6:00PM to 7:30PM) and on Saturday afternoon and evening (Nov. 15th – 3:00PM to 4.30PM and 6 to 8:30PM).
Our booksigning sessions are open-door, relaxed events, with no tables or waiting, and they offer a friendly atmosphere in which you can drink, mingle, talk about photobooks; look at the dummy exhibitions; and meet the artists who will be happy to present, sign and inscribe their books for you.
L’Ascenseur Végétal will be there to sell books, and also to help you discover new artists and photobooks. They’re also looking to discover new books and artists, so why not include your book in their online catalogue and on their tables?
We are looking forward to meeting you. Please do stay tuned for updates on the list of artists announced for the « Apero-Signing » sessions!
“The dummy is a work in progress but also a significant waymark on the route to publication in one form or another. It seemed appropriate that while we look to celebrate the beauty of the dummy as an artefact in it’s own right, we should also acknowledge it as a work yet to be fully realised and so seek to support it’s author in that realisation.” –
