The Fine Press Book Association
in collaboration with the Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Show
is pleased to announce the second annual
Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair
on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 8am to 4pm.
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 only 24 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 have established a reasonable booking rate at the Pod 39 hotel, to try to make the fair as economical as possible for exhibitors. 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 2015. 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 and your membership is not current at the time of this announcement, you will be placed on a waiting list until December 15, 2014. If tables are still available at that time, they will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
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 suggest hotels and give a calendar of events soon.
