More than 300 photobooks from the Indie Photobook Library will be part of the pop-up library space at Conveyor throughout the month of December.
Conveyor Arts recently set up shop at Mana Contemporary, a Tobacco Factory turned artist community, in Jersey City. Their studio space includes a traditional print shop with letterpress and small book binding equipment. They also house an inkjet studio, where they make exhibition prints for artists, and a digital work station for prepping books and photographs for production and exhibition.
Conveyor specializes in small print runs of artists’ books, zines and other printed matter related to photography. They collaborate closely with artists on all aspects of the book-making process, from concept and design, to the physical object. Their mission is to help artists and small publishers tailor their book project to fit the concept within it.
