Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair (SABF) & Book Arts Show

The SABF, "An International Book Fair featuring Thousands of Rare Books, Prints, Maps, Photographs & Ephemera for sale, and the work of several prominent Book Artists," is being held at the Seattle Center Pavilion on Saturday October 14th - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday October 15th - 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 at the door and good for both days. Children under 12 will be admitted free.

The highly anticipated pre-fair dinner on Friday, October 13, features Nicholas Basbanes speaking on Among the Gently Mad. Reservations are required, of course. Call 206.323.3999 no later than October 9, 2006 to reserve your seat at the price of $35 for vegetarians and $50 for those who eat decaying flesh. ;)

While you are in Seattle, please stop in a few of the used bookstores in the city. The Used Bookstore Guide, provided by Seattle's Recollection Books, is organized by area or location. So, no matter where you are, you can find a great indie!
