Time Out says
Get your hands on some arty tomes at this lit(erary) event
Combine your twin passions of art and literature this month at the Melbourne Art Book Fair. Hosted by the National Gallery of Victoria and running alongside Melbourne Design Week, the Melbourne Art Book Fair features more than a hundred stalls selling art books from local and international publishers.
It’s the perfect chance to pick up a gorgeous guide to your favourite creative, or discover an arty edition to spruce up your lonely coffee table. In addition to the art book bonanza, the Melbourne Art Book Fair will also include keynote lectures, workshops and a full-day symposium that celebrates local and international publishing.
The three-day fair will be hosting talks from Brooklyn-based creative studio Tunica and Berlin-based magazine publisher Girls Like Us. The $15,000 Cornish Family Prize Art and Design Publishing will also be awarded during the Fair.
The Melbourne Art Book Fair is on from Friday, March 15 to Sunday, March 17. Entry is free and tickets to selected workshops can be bought online on the NGV's website.
