CABF is an experiment in showcasing emerging directions and diverse legacies within small press arts publishing. Started in 2017 by No Coast (Aay Preston-Myint and Alexander Valentine), the fair features an international group of over 125 arts publishers, small presses, book artists, comics artists, zinemakers and printmakers, with onsite and satellite programming and after parties. We look forward to a third year of connecting artists and publishers with each other and to audiences in Chicago.
The Chicago Art Book Fair will once again convene at the historic Chicago Athletic Association, at 12 S. Michigan Avenue.
