We have been big fans of Sarah Nicholls' publications since we picked them up many years ago at some of the first iterations of Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair. Sarah doesn't make a lot of copies and rarely sells them outside of her own web site and at art book fairs. We asked for years to get her to sell her publications through our store and she wouldn't. We finally talked her into getting three titles. We invited Nicholls to contribute to a publication we made where artist publishers reflect on the waste their publishing efforts generate. You can read her contribution in it: Artist Publishers Reflect on Book Waste.
Nicholls' description of the publication:
"In the fall of 2021 a friend and I walked the length of the Grand Central Parkway in Queens, from the Triborough/ RFK Bridge to the far edge of Eastern Queens. This pamphlet describes this journey, and what we found along the way. What is it like to walk at a human pace next to a road designed for cars?"
