St. Louis Fine Print, Rare Book & Paper Arts Fair

Join us at the 13th Annual
St. Louis Fine Print, Rare Book & Paper Arts Fair 
May 3-5, 2019

The St. Louis Fine Print, Rare Book & Paper Arts Fair brings together thirty local and national fine print and rare book dealers to present a broad array of exceptional materials appealing to collectors at all levels of experience. From finely illustrated books to prints by Audubon, WPA artists and Old Masters, original watercolors and historic photographs, the thousands of treasures available to view and purchase include something for every taste and budget. The Fair is presented annually the first weekend in May to benefit the Mercantile Library's collection and conservation funds.
