Virtual Art Book Fair

Taking this much-loved art book event online in 2020

Venue: Online When: Nov 16th - Nov 23rd 2020

The Tokyo Art Book Fair was originally founded in 2009, and has seen publishers, galleries, and artists flock to Tokyo from around the world to celebrate all things printed on an annual basis. With the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 limiting a range of in-person gatherings, the book fair is going virtual for the first time.

The event will have a variety of ways to feel connected in the digital realm, including glimpses at exhibitor booths, lectures, talk shows, signing events, and more. The goal is that even without an in-person exhibition, the virtual fair will still capture the allure of all types of printed media.

Do note that the event runs from November 16th until November 23rd, but real-time communication with the various booths will only be available on the last four-and-a-half days of the event.

Getting there

The event will be held online at the Virtual Art Book Fair site here.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
