ABOUT


The SF Art Book Fair is an annual multi-day festival of artists' publications. The event is FREE and OPEN to the public and features artists’ books, art catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, printed ephemera, and artists' multiples. These works are presented by over 100 independent publishers, antiquarian dealers, artists, collectors, and enthusiasts. Over the weekend, the fair hosts 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 we welcomed 120 exhibitors and over 10,000 visitors. We 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 is 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 restaurant.
