This year the IFPDA held once again at the Jacob Javits Center, welcomed 70 galleries and publishers to the venue. Under new direction by Helen Toomer, the fair featured a special project by Swoon, which greeted visitors at the entrance. Walking the carpeted floors amongst the numerous booths, artists represented ranged from contemporary to those from antiquity. Covering a broad range of works on paper, original prints and editions, the IFPDA had a lot to offer visitors including a wide range of price points for the experienced and budding collector. Below is a selection of our top favorites. See you there next year and congrats to Helen on her first run at the fair!
