Manhattan Book Fair

Fine Press Book Fair

Church of St. Vincent Ferrer, 869 Lexington Ave at 66th Street 
Saturday April 23, from 10 AM to 5 PM.

The Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair is back!! Please join us on Saturday, April 23, 2022 for a gathering of fine press, private press, and artist book practitioners. The Fine Press Book Association is happy to finally resume sponsorship of this (normally) annual event. As usual, the one-day fair will coincide with the NY Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory, with us being right next door. Since its inception in 2014 the Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair has become a popular event, drawing collectors and enthusiasts from around the world. Each year exhibitors display their wares, representing a broad swath of experience—from famous presses to student practitioners just starting out. We will continue to offer the FPBA Collector’s Prize as well this year. The fair organizer is Dina Pollack.
