Jersey Art Book Fair 2024 (JAB Fair) takes place February 3-4, 2024 in Jersey City, NJ
Dense Magazine is pleased to present the second annual Jersey Art Book Fair, a two-day event that celebrates the broad art form of bookmaking. Set in the state where the offset press was first invented, Jersey Art Book Fair – JAB Fair for short – believes that print is alive and well, thanks to a movement of artists, writers, designers, publishers, small presses and printers that continues to thrive: from bookbinding, screen printing, paper making and letterpress printing, to zine making, broadsheets, graphic novels, pop-up books and print ephemera.
For two days, Jersey Art Book Fair will host over 100 exhibitors and dozens of events, exhibits and festivities that span the full breadth of the art publishing community. JAB Fair is committed to expanding this community by removing barriers to access and elevating underrepresented voices. We hope to draw a wide range of exhibitors, including students, artists, collectors, and book lovers. Examples of priority audiences include BIPOC, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ people, immigrants, underserved geographic and knowledge areas, and non-native English speakers.
