OPEN NOW: UDP:Hobart, at Liberty Rock Books in “The Book Village of the Catksills” (Hobart, NY)

Hobart Book Village, nestled in the bucolic northern Catskills, was started in 2005 by Don Dales. The Village borrows its structure from Richard Booth, considered the progenitor of book villages, and is now home to six bookstores with more than 20 other established booksellers within a 50 mile radius.

Liberty Rock Books’ gallery space will carry books, chapbooks, letterpress prints, and ephemera from Ugly Duckling Presse through the fall of 2014. Events have been scheduled including readings by and receptions for Nathaniel Farrell, Nelly Reifler, Jen Kabat, Rebecca Wolff and Danniel Schoonebeck.

Previous UDP Pop-Up shops:

+ UDP:D (Detroit)

+ Third Factory (Brooklyn)

THIRD FACTORY was a temporary bookstore, workspace, and print gallery run by Ugly Duckling Presse in the storefront of the Old American Can Factory at 242 Third Street in Brooklyn from late January to early March 2014.

Third Factory was stocked with books, chapbooks, letterpress prints, and ephemera from UDP, and over twenty other small local presses, printers, and book artists (see full list below). In addition to serving as a bookstore and print gallery, Third Factory functioned as an active workspace for Artists-in-Residence Woody Leslie and Sarah Anne Wallen, and an event space for a variety of readings, performances, and bookbinding workshops.

The name Third Factory refers to both the Old American Can Factory on the corner of Third Street and Third Avenue, a long-time industrial neighborhood by the canal, and Viktor Shklovksy’s autobiographical novel, in which the Third Factory is a metaphor for his work as a writer in the new Revolutionary Russian society.
