Welcome to Printed Matter / St Marks!

Printed Matter / St Marks is our second Printed Matter bookstore, opened in July 2018. The ground floor storefront is located in the heart of the East Village (on the corner of St Marks Place and 2nd Avenue) within the nonprofit arts institution Swiss Institute.

The store’s curated selection of publications and editions reflects Printed Matter’s larger catalog and mission—our inventory includes independently published books by artists, zines, rare and historical material, along with a selection of artist-made multiples, prints, and posters. Printed Matter / St Marks also carries Swiss Institute’s publishing imprint and publications related to their past and current exhibitions and programs.

This smaller Printed Matter location aims to foster and grow our community in the East Village, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side. Printed Matter / St Marks focuses on books and programming that celebrate the history of avant garde art and countercultural publications in Lower Manhattan.

Printed Matter / St Marks hosts a lively schedule of public events including book launches, readings, panel discussions, performances and monthly bookbinding workshops. See our upcoming and past events here.
