Come see PBox in corporeal form at The New York Art Book Fair this weekend at PS1 in Long Island City, NY.
This year, I’m lucky enough to have an entire room all to PictureBox and besides a solid selection of PBox stuff, I’m focusing on three mini-exhibitions by Karl Wirsum (ultra rare posters, puppets and Hairy Who comic books); King Terry Johnson (The debut of his new DVD, plus 30 products from tea towels to t-shirts to figurines); East Totem West (circa 1968 unique psychedelic mono-prints).
Plus rarities including:
-A five-volume set of Apollinaire books illustrated by Milton Glaser, Jean Michel Folon and Pablo Picasso.
-Milton Glaser’s Herman Hesse Calendar from 1975.
-New York City Outlaws issues 1-5: A rare and deeply eccentric urban comic book that is vastly stranger than I could ever explain.
-Airbrush paintings by Charlie White III and other original art.
-An exquisite artists’ book by Japanese master Yuichi Yokoyama.
-Silk scarves by ultra-hippy Peter Max.
Of course I’ll also have H Day, If ‘n Oof, some groovy Moebius books, some mini-comics, and on and on!
Sculptors Halsey Rodman and Ohad Mermi have designed a stunning installation to keep all this stuff straight. So come on out and see us.

Walking into this room is gonna be like walking into the central PBox brain: Undeniable objects; a strong concern for mostly-ignored history, and an interest in sexed up figuration and high design.
This blog is going to take you to school. You will learn about all things PictureBox: old dudes; obscure design; good painting; bad painting; dogs; annoying product endorsements. And so forth. All from me, Dan Nadel, your PictureBox host.
