The Newsstand:
Independently Published Zines, Magazines & Artist Books

(Skira Rizzoli)

Edited by Lele Saveri
Editor  Martynka Wawrzyniak

This book documents and encapsulates the story of The Newsstand, a pop-up retail space curated and managed by Lele Saveri. The Newsstand transformed an ordinary subway hub into a mecca for independently published magazines, books, comics, and zines.

Located within Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Avenue subway station in 2013, the temporary space hosted events and art exhibitions in which the artists, acting as guest clerks, were given carte blanche to transform the space.

In November 2015, The Newsstand, including the original zines and books was re-created and built to scale at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, as part of the exhibition Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015.
