The Toronto Art Book Fair (TOABF) is a free public event taking place June 16th – June 19th 2016 at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw Street) featuring curated exhibitions, 75 Canadian and international vendors, and community programming that includes a speaker series, readings, talks, launches and workshops. In its inaugural year TOABF will highlight over 150 national and international artists, publishers, designers, curators, bookmakers, writers, and performers.

TOABF is dedicated to increasing the visibility, dissemination, appreciation, and understanding of the artists’ book and its contemporary manifestations within the visual arts field in Toronto and abroad. Independent artistic print culture has a rich narrative in Canadian art history, and is an often overlooked aspect of Canadian cultural identity. The goal of TOABF is to highlight these personal and collective stories, and elevate the artistic integrity of artists’ books by presenting artists’ books, multiples, and printed matter by Canadian and international artists to a wide audience.
