The Dublin Art Book Fair 2021: Manual (DABF21), the eleventh edition of Ireland’s only art book fair, opens today at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin. Taking place both online and on-site, the gallery in the heart of Dublin’s Cultural Quarter transforms into a centre for art and artist books.
Dublin Art Book Fair champions artists and creative, small and independent publishers, Irish and international, with books on art, design, visual culture, philosophy, architecture, select fiction and poetry. Guest curated by cultural historian Dr Lisa Godson, her theme, Manual, considers forms of publication, printed matter and books made to provide guidance, instruction and understanding.
We can’t be there in person but lots of Book Works titles are available at the fair, along with many other excellent publishers, and there is a full programme of talks and workshops around art books. Visit the website for more info and schedules.
