Northampton Book and Book Arts Fair, Nov. 30-Dec. 1

Northampton, Massachusetts - The region’s leading used & antiquarian booksellers and fine letterpress printers, book binders, paper makers, and artist book makers will be showcased at the fourth edition of Northampton Book and Book Arts Fair on Friday, November 30, 2018, 5 to 9 pm and Saturday, December 1, 2018, 10 am to 4 pm at the Smith College Campus Center.

In addition to an exhibition and sale, on November 30th at 4pm, the fair will feature a round-table discussion with curators of special collections from the 5-College libraries, at Graham Hall auditorium, adjacent to the Smith College Art Museum.  “There is no end to the designs, illustrations, materials, texts, genres, and fascination of fine press books.  For more than 150 years, they have been produced--and seriously collected.  This round-table will look at private and institutional collecting of these amazing books,” says moderator and rare book librarian Sidney Berger.  An opening reception will follow at the Campus Center Wilson Atrium. 

Admission to the book fair is free and open to the public.
