What is the NY Art Book Fair?

Initiated in 2006, Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair (NYABF) is one of the leading international gatherings for the distribution of artists’ books, celebrating the full breadth of the art publishing community. NYABF hosts exhibitors from around the world, including a broad range of artists and collectives, activists, small presses, institutions, galleries, antiquarian booksellers, and distributors. 

The event draws thousands of individuals each year, including students, artists, collectors, and book lovers. NYABF was held at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City from 2009 to 2019 and we’re deeply grateful for the institution's partnership and commitment for over a decade. In 2022, NYABF returned to 548 W 22nd St, the original location of the Fair in 2006 and 2007.

The 2024 edition of the Fair will return to this same venue, just a few blocks away from Printed Matter’s flagship store in Chelsea.
