Tsundoku returns
with its special focus on books

The annual HALFTONE Print Fair returns for its sixth edition to The Library Project this Autumn. The fair is an initiative of PhotoIreland, hosted every year at The Library Project, bringing together artists working in disciplines whose output manifests in printed form, and to showcase the best photographic works. In addition to the many prints visitors will discover, HALFTONE proposes a dedicated space to another printed matter to be celebrated, the book; it is presented with the passion for accumulating more books than one can read that the Japanese call Tsundoku.

Artists are selected through invitation and an open call aimed at fine art printers, illustrators, designers, photographers and creatives alike, to be displayed saloon-style and sold at the Temple Bar venue The Library Project. The fair format aims to motivate collecting and to excite artworks sales, supporting the artists’ practice. Each year sees a high number of private and corporate sales, as well as sales to public collections.

Extending its celebration of the printed matter in this 6th edition, there is a new addition this year: Tsundoku, offering visitors two exclusive exhibitions presenting Kassel Dummy Award and Australia & New Zealand Photo Book Award.

The fair is available for browsing at The Library Project.
