The Fine Press Book Association
in collaboration with the Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Show is pleased to announce the sixth annual
Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair
on Saturday, March 9, 2019.

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, March 9.
