It has grown into an impressive cultural event and platform for creative and cutting-edge publishers, big and small and a centre for the contemporary artist book. As a meeting ground across disciplines, DABF reaches out to a wide audience through a curated programme of learning and discussion in a relaxed and stimulating environment. You'll discover a vibrant mix of books and publishers inclusive of art, architecture, design, visual culture, philosophy, select fiction and poetry.
