Free and open to the public, VA/BF is the only international art book fair in Canada and one of only two on the West Coast. In 2015 the event is anticipated to attract nearly 5,000 visitors from across the Greater Vancouver Area and beyond.

Presented by Project Space, VA/BF is a multi-day festival of artists’ publishing featuring over one hundred local, national and international publishers, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, performances and artist projects. Featured artists travel to Vancouver from across Canada and the globe, and produce everything from books, magazines, zines and printed ephemera to digital, performative or other experimental forms of publication.
