Good news from the METRO Show and Edition/Artists' Book Fair
We love a good collaboration – who doesn’t these days? – but we’re especially impressed by the second annual METRO Show teaming up with the estimable Edition/Artists' Book Fair. The E/AB Fair, now in its 15th year was originally scheduled to take place in early November in its usual location, Center548 on West 22nd Street. But the effects of Hurricane Sandy of Manhattan forced the show to cancel. When the organizers of METRO heard this, they extended a lifeline, offering surplus rented space in the Altman Building, adjacent to their main location in the Metropolitan Pavilion, to E/AB. As a result, the two shows will run concurrently Jan. 24–27, with an invitation-only preview on Jan. 23.
