The Fine Press Book Association
in collaboration with the Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Show is pleased to announce the third annual
Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair
on Saturday, April 9, 2016, from 9:30am to 6pm.
This is an addition to the Vintage Book Fair, known colloquially as the "Shadow Fair." It is a less-formal, less-expensive fair held during the same weekend as the New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory. This year, as it was last year, it will be located right around the corner from the main fair at the Park Avenue Armory. However, it will take place only one day: Saturday, April 9.
The fair will constitute an added section to the existing Vintage Book Fair, known colloquially as the "Shadow Fair," as it is the less formal, less expensive fair held during the same weekend as the New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory. A limited number of six foot long tables will be available to member presses of the FPBA for $325 each. Fine Press and antiquarian exhibitors will be located in the cafeteria of the St. Vincent Ferrer parochial school on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 65th Street, directly around the corner from the Park Avenue Armory. We will be very keen on exhibitors alerting all their contacts and promoting the show through social media and any other means available.
Due to the limited number of tables, the show will book on a first-come, first-served basis with preference given to current FPBA members. In order to exhibit, your FPBA membership must extend through spring 2016. If you are interested in exhibiting and your membership will expire prior to spring you will be given the opportunity to extend your membership to qualify.
If you are interested in exhibiting, please contact Tina Bruno at Flamingo Eventz, firstname.lastname@example.org. If your application is accepted, you will receive a notice of acceptance, followed by a contract. This page will give a calendar of events soon.
