San Francisco Art Book Fair Kicks Off Its Third Year This July

San Francisco Art Book FairSAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco Art Book Fair, an annual multi-day festival will feature artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, printed ephemera, and artists’ multiples. These works will be presented by over 100 independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, collectors, and enthusiasts. Over the course of the weekend, the fair will be complemented by a diverse range of talks, discussions, book launches, on and off-site special projects, exhibitions and signings.

The mission of the fair is to foster the unique art publishing community of the Bay Area while providing a platform for national and international publishers to exhibit their work to a new audience.

Last year the fair welcomed 110 exhibitors and over 10,000 visitors. They aim to reach an even larger audience this year and create an event that continues to showcase some of the most interesting publishers and booksellers in the world.

The SF Art Book Fair will be held at Minnesota Street Project. The project’s landmark location, 1275 Minnesota Street, houses 10 galleries, a not-for-profit, temporary exhibitions spaces, media room, and a recently opened restaurant.
