Art book lovers in the Toronto area (and beyond), save the dates later this month from October 27 to 30. We’ll see you for the second / edition Art Book Fair at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, running in conjunction with Art Toronto, Canada’s international fair for modern and contemporary art.
Last year, over 8,000 art and book enthusiasts visited 2 ⁄ edition, and perused a wide range of artist’s books, publications, editions and ephemera presented by local and international exhibitors.
New and return visitors to 2 ⁄ edition will find an expanded roster of vendors, and continue to have their eyes and minds opened to alternative ways of looking at and collecting art. A stimulating and engaging series of talks, panels and special exhibitions will also be presented throughout the weekend in conjunction with the fair’s programming partners.
Here are just two of the highlights from the upcoming art book fair that we think you’ll enjoy:
