The San Francisco Art Book Fair (SFABF) is pleased to announce its sixth year at Minnesota Street Project. Open July 14 through July 16, 2023, with a preview the evening of July 13th, the SFABF is a free annual multi-day exhibition and celebration of printed material from independent publishers, artists, designers, collectors, and enthusiasts from around the world.

The fair places the unique history and perspectives of the Bay Area in conversation with national and international publishing communities. Free and open to the public, SFABF features artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, printed ephemera, and artists’ multiples. Throughout the weekend, visitors to the fair are welcome to experience a diverse range of talks, performances, book launches, special projects, exhibitions, and signings across the Project’s contemporary art campus, as well as select off-site projects and events.

Sponsored by the Minnesota Street Project Foundation, SFABF’s mission is to help sustain the creation and distribution of printed material through support of the independent publishing community from the Bay Area and beyond, and to expand our reach to new audiences.

We look forward to seeing you all and catching up in July at the 2023 San Francisco Art Book Fair!
