Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair

The 32nd annual “Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair” brings the nation's finest book and print dealers to New York City.   “GVABF” will celebrate at P.S. 3 in the West Village. "The Hippie School" (as it’s alternative education pioneers fondly nicknamed it in 1971) sponsors this event yearly to raise funds for the school's inspired enrichment programs.

Drawing 60+ of the east coast's best book dealers, this 3-day fair offers both the serious bibliophile and the casual browser a delightful opportunity to peruse rare and vintage books spanning the 17th through 21st centuries, including children's series and illustrated books, modern first editions, art, photography and design, maps & prints, political flyers, unusual paper ephemera and memorabilia; also Dickensiana, paleontology, architecture, autographs, African American studies, film history and comics.

GVABF is one of PS3's cornerstone events, and like the school community itself, the Exhibitors and their collections are comprised of interesting, colorful characters and rare gems. It is truly an "only in New York " experience, one that newcomers to the city congratulate themselves for finding . . . and an experience that, in our otherwise on-lined and chain-stored book world, long-term residents and participants hope won't disappear.
