Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As Time Out notes, Chicago does not have an amazing art book fair of its own—unlike other major cities like New York and LA, which each host fairs by non-profit Printed Matter. That's about to change with the arrival on August 11 of Medium Cool.

The show, which is being held in event space/photography studio Prairie Production, will run from noon to 8pm and feature artsy publishers like Ooga Booga out of LA; Grand Rapids, MI's Issue Press and many more (the full list is here). Sales will be cash-only.
