Melbourne Art Book Fair

Things that make me cry? The National Gallery of Victoria holding the very first Melbourne Art Book Fair, bringing together Australian and international books designers and publishers on 1-3 May.

Exhibitors will be showcasing fine art, architecture, design, limited editions and small-run artist books, and new types of art publishing.

Along with exhibitor stalls, there’ll be free talks, book signings, performances and a symposium on the future of book design and publishing — which is the one thing that grabbed my attention.

Exhibitors include Printed Matter, a NYC artist book institution; Melbourne artist book publisher, bookstore and art space Perimeter Books; independent Melbourne publisher Surpllus; independent Castlemaine publisher 3ply; Sydney publishing house and design studio Rainoff Books; and Melbourne print studio Dawn Press.
