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 100 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 performances to celebrate art and design both local and international. 

You can also head along to a half-day symposium curated by Olga Tenisheva and Nicolay Boyadijev from Moscow's Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, or try a friendship speed dating session presented by Ladies of Leisure. 

The Melbourne Art Book Fair is on from Friday, March 13 to Sunday, March 15. Entry is free and tickets to selected workshops can be bought online on the NGV's website.
