About THE TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR
THE TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR started in 2009; the first book fair in Japan to specialize in art publications.
Held annually, it gathers independent publishers, gallery presses, bookshops as well as individual artists and groups. The fair has seen constant growth in its scale and content over the years, and the three-day event now gathers more than 300 participants from Japan and abroad and attracts more than 10,000 visitors every year.
At the fair, visitors can communicate with and buy publications directly from hundreds of publishers and artists who create unique and innovative art publications; they can also enjoy various events including special exhibitions, talks/panel discussions and film screenings. As the biggest of its kind in Asia, THE TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR aims to champion and lead art publishing culture in the region, and create the ideal opportunity for visitors to experience the ever evolving, vibrant arena of arts publishing.
What is an Art Book Fair ?
It is an event where participants (organizations, companies, individuals and groups) who work in the field of art set up a booth to present their own publications; where they can communicate and trade with the visitors directly. The participants vary from individual artists and designers to art publishers, galleries and bookshops. It is a rare and ideal opportunity for visitors to find thousands of rich and varied artistic expressions in book form, which are often more affordable and larger in edition than other forms of art.
