It was the 1st time we had a table.
Although we don’t (yet) have a print edition of our work, we gave out our beautiful business cards & limited edition buttons designed by Sophia Ahamed from our CONNECTIONS parties.

We're all set up! Come have a peek 😉 @vancouverartbookfair Tonight 6-8pm Sat & Sun 12-6pm @vanartgallery Totally free & all ages #vabf #vabf2017 #vancouverart #artbookfair #vandoc

We want to give a huge shout out to Emma & Helen, and the incredible team of VABF organizers. Thank you for supporting the art publishing world, and for bringing this array of book makers to Vancouver. Supporting local and international.

Sharp shooters Alisha Weng, Bryce Hunnersen, Rennie Brown, Saman Shariati, and Jon Vincent photographed the people, presenters, and published work. Ash Tanasiychuk shot a lot of instagrams, and some facebook & tweets, too.

Thanks Vancouver for supporting this fantastic annual event! Although we’ve experienced it every year, it’s always a pleasant shock how packed the VABF is, from opening to closing, all weekend.
