The 32nd Annual Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair - August 5 and 6

3254c0b0-5e87-4d1f-a9f4-6586121d8a75

Buying opportunities in Denver

 

 The 32nd Annual Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair - Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6, 2016 in the Expo Building at the Denver Mart

 

A chance to see much of the regional field under one roof is a very appealing idea.  Over the first weekend in August in Denver, Colorado dealers from across the nation will converge to create critical mass sufficient to draw a substantial regional audience.  It’s a lovely idea and for the field a continuing God send.

 

This year’s fair follows the well-established show format of exhibitors’ displays and public events.   A complete list of events will be posted closer to the show dates.

 

What is already confirmed:

 

There will be two guest speakers on Saturday. Thomas Haller Buchanan, Artist, will present "Beauty and the Book" and offer his book of the same name for sale. Karen Jones, Book Arts League, will discuss restoration, repair, and care of fine books and will demonstrate actual techniques.

 

Here is a full list of exhibitors:
