Vancouver Art Book Fair

VABF is a publishing event that takes place in October each year. It’s an inspiring fair that brings together comic artists, illustrators, small press publishers and museum collectors. The event offers the opportunity for the artist book community to learn what is current, and what the future holds for this exciting art form. Members of the public can view and buy artists’ work at the fair, as well as meet and speak with the artists themselves. A programme of talks and discussions form part of the immersive event. Founded in 2012, Vancouver Art Book Fair is an informal and friendly show that attracts around 5,000 visitors over the weekend.
