Basel Antiquarian Book Market

Friday, January 19th, 2024 - Sunday, January 21st, 2024

The annual Basel Antiquarian Book Market at the Schmiedenhof on Rümelinsplatz offers an interesting insight into the world of antiquarian books and graphic art.

The Basel antiquarian book market is organized by a small group of antiquarians from Basel and the region and takes place every year in January. The market takes place in the GGG's Schmiedenhof on Rümelinsplatz in Basel. In this digital world, it is very important to organizers that the printed book is not forgotten. Events like this book market are one of the few opportunities to experience literature together instead of just using and consuming it. Personal contact with antiquarians and the tactile experience of the printed book create direct, natural access to the book and the entire artistic and literary world that it brings to us. It is our greatest wish and ambition that the book remains an important part of our society.
