Bookshop

The Carpenter Center’s bookshop is a collaboration with Motto Books, a bookshop based in Berlin. The bookshop is one of the only places in the Boston-area that carries small press contemporary art books, magazines, and journals, with an emphasis on international publications and limited-edition projects.
