Oxford Book Fair

Oxford Fine Press Book Fair

Every two years the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA) in the UK organises the Oxford Fine Press Book Fair with the assistance of the UK team of the Fine Press Book Association. The Fair runs over a Saturday and Sunday with around 100 stands for presses, dealers, suppliers, and related organisations. The Fair Manager for the PBFA is Henry Gott.

The Fine Press Book Association organises a Fair Dinner held at St Cross College on the Saturday evening. and a programme of three lectures and the presentation of various awards on the Sunday.

The next Fair was originally planned for March 2020 but will now be held on 20th and 21st November 2021. All being well, it will be held, as originally planned, in the Examination Schools in central Oxford.

In lieu of the March event, a “virtual fair” was held showcasing exhibitors as email newsletters. These can be viewed here:
