Melbourne Art Book Fair 

Since 2015, the Melbourne Art Book Fair (MABF) has brought together publishers, artists and designers to showcase some of the world’s best publications in bookshops, galleries, libraries, community centres and public gardens across Melbourne and Victoria.  The fair celebrates Melbourne’s status as a UNESCO City of literature, connects Melbourne to international publishers and designers, and provides a trading place for those dedicated to printed matter.  Past international guests to the fair include: Metahaven, Experimental Jetset, Girls Like Us and Printed Matter. In 2023, the first weekend sees the popular Stallholder Fair held at NGV’s Great Hall with over 70 stalls of leading and emerging artists and publishers. Throughout the festival, satellite events will take place in bookshops, galleries, libraries, community centres, public gardens and design studios around metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
