Sming Sming Books's participation in this year's NY Art Book Fair is made possible through the Shannon Michael Cane Award.
Shannon Michael Cane (1974-2017) was a pillar of the Printed Matter family and artists' book community, serving as Curator of Fairs and Editions from 2013-2017. He was a champion of emerging book artists and publishers, often providing new voices with their first opportunity to share their work broadly through the NY and LA Art Book Fairs. This scholarship is provided through the Shannon Michael Cane Memorial Fund at Printed Matter, initiated by his closest friends and collaborators, which supports projects carried out in his spirit and memory.
The award is granted to four first-time NYABF exhibitors (artists, artists’ book publishers, or collectives) in the early stages of their career. The inaugural year winners are backbonebooks, Ian Giles, MonoRhetorik, and Sming Sming Books.
