Manhattan Book Fair

Fine Press Book Fair

The Americas Chapter of the Fine Press Book Association is pleased to announce that the eighth annual Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2023.

Church of St. Vincent Ferrer, 869 Lexington Ave at 66th Street
Saturday April 29, from 10 AM to 5 PM.

The Fine Press Book Association is happy to announce the 9th annual event in collaboration with the Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Show. 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.
