“The New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF) – officially sanctioned by Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA) and International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) and produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates – regrets to announce that the fair, set for September at the Park Avenue Armory, has been cancelled due to growing concerns of Covid-19 and the Delta variant.
Originally set for September 9-12, the NYIABF is known for a robust, international roster of exhibitors. This year, many of the fair’s European dealers were not able to join due to the United States travel ban and, more recently, the fair received cancellations from a significant number of American booksellers and was left with no choice but to cancel.
Serious message from me today: I really enjoy being an exhibitor at the great book fairs in Los Angeles and San Francisco, bringing (aka schlepping) my rare, collectible books and ephemera to show my customers what I’m interested in and what I feel is important to the history of Gastronomy and the world of Printing and Fine Books.
Of course, virtual book fairs are fantastic and popular video platforms are a terrific way to communicate but, we will not go back to “normal” if we don’t get control of this pandemic!
