Become a Member of the Vancouver Art Book Fair!


Free and open to the public, the Vancouver Art/Book Fair is the longest-running international art book fair in Canada. It is a multi-day festival of artists’ publishing featuring over one hundred local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, performances and artist projects. Featured artists travel to Vancouver from across Canada and the globe, and produce everything from books, magazines, zines and printed ephemera to digital, performative or other experimental forms of publication. In 2016 the event is anticipated to attract more than 5,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver Area and beyond.

Why Become a Member?

VA/BF Members are part of an engaged community that is passionate about art publishing in Vancouver and beyond.
