organized by No Coast
Chicago, USA - November 16-18, 2018
The Chicago Art Book Fair began last year as an experiment in showcasing emerging directions and diverse legacies within small press arts publishing. The fair featured an international group of 125 arts publishers, small presses, book artists, comics artists, zinemakers and printmakers, with satellite programming and after parties. To our delight, our first effort made a splash with over 6,000 guests in attendance. In 2018, we look forward to bringing even more of Chicago's people together with another fantastic roster of artist vendors. The Chicago Art Book Fair will once again convene at the historic Chicago Athletic Association, and shall remain free and open to the public.
Applications for CABF 2018 have been EXTENDED to July 1 (follow the link above for the form). Applicants are admitted based on strength of portfolio and uniqueness of perspective, after review by our peer jury of publishers, printmakers, and book/zine/comics artists. The jury will convene in July with notifications released soon after.
