Booklyn and the Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair are proud to announce the 2nd annual AB/Z Fair, a dynamic Manhattan-based book fair of pioneering contemporary creative publishing from A(rtists’) B(ooks) to Z(ines). AB/Z’s goal is to give our participants an affordable and intimate Manhattan venue that provides access to new audiences, collectors, curators and librarians, and provides the general public access to artists and presses that previously have not had book fair venues in Manhattan. The Fair will have 20 tables of esoteric bookmakers in a wide variety of media including: aquatint, collage, fine letterpress, hand-painted, photo-art, screenprint, and risograph.

*PS3 has 7 steps and no elevator–which we are really disappointed to share and to have learned so late. We take responsibility. Booklyn commits to only using spaces in the future which are fully accessible to all bodies, specifically physically disabled bodies.
