Combine your twin passions of art and literature this month at the Melbourne Art Book Fair. Hosted by the National Gallery of Victoria, 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 have free talks, book launches and ticketed events.

If you like talking about what’s to come, book yourself in to see The Future Only Lasts a Moment – a conversation between Amsterdam design collective Experimental Jetset and local experts in art, philosophy, economics and urban studies. Consider yourself a cruciverbalist? Writing school the Good Copy is holding a free mini-festival about crosswords, spelling and grammar featuring The Age crossword editor LR Runnalls.

The Melbourne Art Book Fair is on from Friday March 16 to Sunday March 18. Entry is free and tickets to selected workshops can be bought online at
