International Rare Book & Graphic Arts Fair
This Fair is one of high standards: all exhibitors, without exception, in the “Rare Books” section are members of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and affiliated, for French exhibitors, with the Syndicat de la Librairie Ancienne et Moderne (SLAM): this century-old professional association brings together the best specialists in the field of antiquarian and collectible books, obeying a strict code of ethics and offering collectors and enthusiasts the best guarantees of authenticity and the best possible expertise in their fields. Of the 230 members, nearly half will be present for the most beautiful event of its kind in France and one of the most important in the world, highlighting the exceptional cultural heritage of our collective memory, following the traces left by the human mind over the centuries, from the oldest works dating back to the first books to the contemporary avant-garde pieces.
It is today the most beautiful event of its kind in France and one of the most important in the world for antiquarian books, autographs & manuscripts ; traditionally associated with the Rare Book Fair, the galleries of drawings, prints and engravings demonstrate the variety of prints, from old masters to modern and contemporary artists.
All of them are subject to a Selection Committee which guarantees the authenticity of the works and the accuracy of the notices of the objects presented. Extraordinary sources, personal manuscripts, prints and drawings from every period, shimmering bindings... Booksellers and gallery owners bring to light a priceless written and iconographic heritage and this exceptional cultural event is a unique opportunity to become familiar with a universal heritage value.
A reference fair, a sensual rendez-vous with documents of all styles and periods, the alliance of the book and the paper artwork.
