The New York Art Book Fair wrapped this past weekend, and it kept consistent with its reputation of being completely overwhelming — with thousands of independent artist books on site, it's hard not to feel oversaturated with print ephemera, and even harder to make purchase decisions among so many great titles.

Taking in a photo tour of best in show this year, we stopped by our favorite vendors to see their latest books — capturing the tables of Karma Books, Dashwood, LibraryMan, Pau Wau Publications and Tauba Auerbach's new imprint, Diagonal Press.
