Arts + Letters Press is pleased to be exhibiting at 4/edition Art Book Fair, dedicated to the promotion of art book publishing in all forms and editioned artworks, produced in tandem with Art Toronto. This year, we are excited to have teamed up with CMS Art Projects to showcase our latest artists’ books, catalogues, editioned prints, multiples, and ephemera.

We are also very pleased to be presenting our second issue of art+reading, our serial journal about reading and making. This issue explores the theme—Deep Time—and emphasizes collaborative strategies of making and story-telling, and the entanglements of art and science specifically. Our central interview is with Canadian astronomer, Doug Welch (McMaster University, Canada) and photo-based artist Dianne Bos (Canada and France).They collaborated on a project called “Light Echo”, for which they created a specially constructed room to allow viewers to observe the “Tycho Supernova” as it appeared in the late sixteenth century.
