Book Fairs

Fairs have become a main source of business for many booksellers. These range from high-end fairs such as Firsts London where the rarest books are typically offered, to more relaxed events such as the long list of those organised by the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association.

Fairs that focus on specific sectors of the books and works on paper market like maps, ephemera and photographs are also held throughout the year.
