San Francisco Art Book Fair

The first annual San Francisco Art Book Fair takes place on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of July, with a preview on the 22nd. Over seventy independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, collectors and enthusiasts are participating in the inaugural year, presenting artists’ books, catalogues, monographs, periodicals, zines, ephemera and artists' multiples.

Organized by Luca Antonucci and David Kasprzak, in collaboration with Park Life and the Minnesota Street Project, the multi-day festival will also include live performances and public presentations.  The fair's stated mission 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."

Participating publishers and booksellers include The Thing Quarterly, D.A.P., 2nd Cannons Publications, Steven Leiber Basement, 6 Decades Books , McSweeney's, RE/Search, Motto, RITE, and many others (full list below). The event takes place at 1275 Minnesota Street, a 35,000 square-foot building in San Francisco's Dogpatch neighborhood that houses 11 galleries, temporary exhibitions spaces, a media room, and a cafe.
