Art Basel Preview #1

Art Basel is about a week away and Local Motion Miami promises to provide you with at least one off the beaten path glimpse of the events each day until December 2nd.

For this edition, we highlight Abe's Penny - an art and literature magazine that will be featured at the NADA Art Fair. But let's back up for a minute, the NADA Art Fair is a non-profit group of galleries and art aficionados dedicated to making art more readily available to the general public. This year the fair is located in Miami Beach and free!

Now to the nitty gritty: Abe's Penny is a monthly magazine that's printed on postcards! The founders of the magazine - sisters Anna and Tess Knoebel - describe their unique product as a" narrative, a combination of photographs and text [that] unfolds in sequence, and subscribers receive one part per week by mail."

The duo will be at the fair and giving away limited editions of the magazine. Take a peek at the magazine below [make sure to click on the image for a better look]:

If you can't make it to the fair, the sisters will be posting one part of the special issue magazine on their Web site each day during NADA Art Fair's duration. Their site is located here. You can also subscribe to their magazine online.
