Jumbo Editorial Team

The Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Canada (ABAC) has announced to hold the 2011 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair (TIABF) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from October 29 to 31.

As the only international antiquarian and collectible book fair in Canada, the TIABF will feature exhibitors from across Europe and North America. They will bring a wide ranging selection of books, maps, prints and manuscripts for perusal, including travel and exploration; natural history, science and technology; children’s and illustrated; fine press and limited editions; modern first editions and signed volumes; antiquarian and incunabula; as well as interesting and unusual books of all kinds.

There will be plenty to attract experienced or novice book collector, a librarian or an archivist, a scholar or an academic, or those simply interested in books and the book arts in general, who are more likely find something of their taste.

The organizers have extended the invitation to visit the fair, explore the booths, and purchase the treasures on display. The pleasant weather in Toronto during the last three days of October should be an added incentive to the visitors converging there from overseas.

After a 15-year hiatus, the 2010 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair (TIABF) was a great success last year and featured most of Canada's finest as well as many top international antiquarian booksellers and attracted almost 1500 visitors.

In 2011, this outstanding show will again bring booksellers and bibliophiles together for a three-day event. It should become be yet another memorable event for the bookworms.

Sponsored by the ABAC, the 2011 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair joins the prestigious San Francisco, New York and Boston fairs on the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers’ (ILAB) 2011 North American calendar.
