Editions/Artists' Books Fair has been New York's premier showcase for the discovery of new and contemporary prints, multiples, and artists' books since its founding in 1998. Renowned for its cultivation of an international community of publishers, E/AB Fair provides a platform for their growth in the art market. Each year, the Fair presents a thoughtfully curated exhibition of works by hundreds of emerging and established artists and an informative program of artist talks.

Dolphin Press & Print is a premier printmaking atelier, distinguished by its celebration and commitment to the highest standards of the printmaking tradition. Located in Baltimore at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Dolphin Press & Print is a collaborative print studio where students are the printers, not assistants. As a teaching press, established artists work side by side with MICA students to develop and produce original work. The mentorship role between undergraduate students and Artist-in-Residence makes Dolphin Press & Print truly distinctive among its peers.


Established in 1998 by Hilary Lorenz and John Yau, the Press was designed to promote collaboration between visual artists, writers and students in order to produce limited-edition letterpress books and broadsides. Throughout its history, the Press has produced more than 40 such projects in addition to in-house posters and announcements.

In 2000, master printer and papermaker Gail Deery, then Chair of Printmaking at MICA, assumed direction of the Press. She broadened the mission statement to include printed editions in a variety of printmaking media. Deery is also Director of the Book Arts concentration. In 2003, Whitney Sherman, then Chair of Illustration at MICA, expanded the scope of Press projects to include work with illustration book artists/designers as well as students from the undergraduate  Illustration department. Since then she has gone on to found the MFA in Illustration Practice and engage her graduate students in the Press projects. Deery and Sherman serve as Co-Directors of the Press.

Closely tied to the MICA Printmaking department curriculum, the Press offers students the opportunity to work in collaboration with established artists, writers and printers. Each year, an undergraduate student is appointed staff printer; the student takes an active role alongside the faculty coordinator in leading projects, maintaining the shop and archives, assisting classes and workshops, and representing the Press to other institutions.

Past projects have included editions with Jon Rappleye, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Jane Kent, Willie Birch, Grace Hartigan, James Siena, Lesley Dill, John Yau, Sarah McEneaney, Renee Stout, Henrik Drescher & Wu Wing Yee, Jeremy Seigler, Dae Sang Eom, Whitney Sherman, Marcella Durand, Anne Waldman, Christopher Whittey, Anselm Berrigan, Bryn Freeman,  Michael Bartalos, and Justin Sirois.
