Free and open to the public, the fair includes special exhibitions, talks, workshops, book launches and performances, as well as many off-schedule events hosted by individual publishers. The fest was founded in 2005 by Printed Matter’s and has become the leading international gathering for the distribution of artists’ books.

 Special portions of the show include The Stage, a space with over 20 performances from musicians and sound artists to poets and performance artists. The Dome Spotlights is a new curated section of 34 exhibitors, whose selection was based on a single artists’ book project, now presented in expanded form on occasion of the Fair.
