An afternoon with 89books
We happily take advantage of a short stay in Rome of the editor and coordinator of the publishing house, Mauro D’Agati and Kateryna Filyuk, to devote an afternoon to their publications and the possibility of a direct chat&talk with this volcanic photographer and publisher and some of the authors of his most recent publications.
In addition to Mauro, in the bookstore with us are Pierluigi Ciambra, Veronica Barbato and from 6 pm Pasquale Autiero.
89books is an independent publishing house based in Palermo, Sicily.
Established in 2018 by photographer Mauro D’Agati and curator Kateryna Filyuk, it specialises in photo-books and artist books. 89booksis committed to the discovery and experimental publication of limited edition photo-books of different forms and contents. Some of the books will be presented in a first edition of 89 copies, except for artist books that could be produced as a collector’s piece or publications printed in offset.
