The artists’ book ‘How To Shoplift Books’ by David Horvitz is a guide on how to steal books. This practical, inventive and funny guide for the aspiring bibliophile-kleptomaniac was originally published in 2013. After, Edition Taube collaborated with other publishing houses and organisations to translate the issue into 20 different languages. Hoe je boeken steelt is the revised version of David Horvitz’s How to Shoplift Books, translated by Erica van Loon and published in a Dutch version by PrintRoom. For ‘Hoe je boeken steelt’, we’ve adapted some of the original stealing, robbing and looting techniques to the Dutch context. It’s probably the last book you’ll buy.
The book was presented in July 2019 at the picnic in Rotterdam, as a part of The EDIT1ON TAUBE PICNIC WORLD TOUR. To celebrate their 10 year anniversary in 2019 Edition Taube has gone on tour to organize 10 casual, open-air events with publishers and artists around the world.
