A Seasonal Art Book Fair Returns to K Road


Motivated by the lack of online and offline spaces to buy and sell independent art books in Auckland, Strange Haven follows up their popular seasonal book fair series with their final event of the year - ‘The Summer Art Book Fair (Christmas Edition)’.

The small-but-lively fair will host a select group of artists, galleries and independent publishers from across Aotearoa, presenting carefully-crafted books and limited-edition publications that reflect a diverse body of thought relating to art, design, theory and practice—while also exhibiting the creative powers of New Zealand's bookmakers.

Current stall holders include Enjoy Gallery, Physics Room, Ngatahi Editions, Split/Fountain, GLORIA Books, Cait Johnson, Gabi Lardies, Compound Press, Index, Remote Photobooks plus more to be announced.

With a mission to initiate and establish an accessible space where the art publishing community can connect with one another and the wider community, the art book fair is free and open to the public.

In support of the newly opened Samoa House Library, a donation table will also be set up on site to encourage both attendees and book sellers alike to gift books to this amazing initiative. To learn more about the Samoa House Library visit their website here: www.samoahouselibrary.org.

The Summer Art Book Fair will also act as the launch event for Dirt, an experimental cookbook that digs into the relationship between food and words and features writers: Courtney Sina Meredith, Lana Lopesi, Rosabel Tan, Dominic Huey, Vanessa Crofskey, Natasha Matila-Smith, Owen Connors, Liam Jacobson, Amy Weng, Reem Musa, Gabi Lardies and Sam Walsh.
