One Thousand Books is an Art Book Festival based in Copenhagen organised by Lodret Vandret. The two first years 28 independent publishers from all of Northern Europe met up in a supermarket in Copenhagen to sell books, greet their audience face to face and to share ideas and strategies with one another. The isles of the supermarket acted as a visual and conceptual backdrop as the art books were sold alongside everyday groceries, to bibliophiles and the unexpecting shopper alike.
The aim of One Thousand Books is to elevate the level, number and quality of art books coming out of our region by hosting an event where players in the field can meet, connect and share ideas and perspectives on current issues in the frame of publishing.
