Join us at Enjoy between Wednesday 20–Saturday 23 November as Tāmaki Makaurau-based art book and ephemera store Strange Goods host a satellite shop in our reading room, with a range of art-related titles from publishers from Aotearoa and beyond.

Now in its fifth year, Enjoy’s Art Book Fair is an annual opportunity to peruse and purchase some of the best recent arts publishing. Originally initiated in response to a lack of outlets for small-press, artist led publishing in Aotearoa, the fair reflects our commitment to print publishing around art and celebrates innovative, critically engaged work by artists, writers and designers.

This year, to reflect the changing landscape for publishing and book distribution in Aoteaora, we’re collaborating with Tāmaki Makaurau-based art book and ephemera store Strange Goods. From 20–23 November, we’ll be joined by Sam Walsh from Strange Goods, who will be offering an exciting range of publications and ephemera for sale, including titles from:

- Bad News Books
- Blue Oyster Art Space
- Bridget Williams Books
- Buried Sound
- Compound Press
- CP Books
- Counterfutures
- DDMMYY
- Dead Bird Books
- Designers Speak Up
- Enjoy Contemporary Art Space
- ESRA
- Femisphere
- Gloria Books
- Heavy Collective
- Index
- Michael Lett
- MUP
- New Territory
- Physics Room
- Pipi Press
- Remote Photobooks
- RIM Books
- Split Fountain
- St Paul St
- Te Tuhi
- Te Uru
- Tropic
- Vapour Memento
- VUP

Established in April 2019 and located at 281 Karangahape Road, Strange Goods is a platform for art-based and self-published books and objects from across Aotearoa. Aiming to create a centralized space for curious minds and opportunities for artists, writers and makers to reimburse their time and labour.

This year, for the first time, we’ll have eftpos available!

Enjoy will be open until 8 p.m. on Friday 22 November for late night book buying! Have a drink from Fortune Favours or Colere Wine and get a head start on Christmas shopping.

Opening hours:
Wednesday–Thursday: 11–6
Friday: 11–8
