Mexico City's Casa Bosques Opens NYC Pop-Up

The Casa Bosques Bookshop, an art and design bookstore founded in Mexico City's Roma neighborhood in 2012, has opened a short-term pop-up in the Standard Hotel in New York City's East Village, Wallpaper reported.

The pop-up opened on June 3 and will run until the 17th. Coinciding with Pride Month, its selection features queer books, zines, and art, including a few rare and out-of-print items. There are titles from Mexico, as well as others sourced from the U.S. and Europe. Other offerings include Casa Bosques chocolates and branded merchandise and apparel.

Casa Bosques co-founder Jorge de la Garza told Wallpaper that setting up the pop-up was "more complex" than originally anticipated, due to many "incredible publications" from Mexico never being reprinted. He described the inventory as a "photograph of today," and feels the selection does a good job of representing the diversity of the LGBT+ community.

The pop-up will host a number of talks and signings before the end of its stay on June 17.
