Call for artists’ books - Dublin Art Book Fair 2016

The sixth annual Dublin Art Book Fair at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios will take place from 10 – 13 November 2016.

The event, which will host over thirty international and Irish publishers, will be held in the gallery space at TBG+S and provides a much needed platform for the distribution of art texts and artists’ self-published projects.

Promoting the making, publication and distribution of art and artists’ books has always been the aim of the Dublin Art Book Fair. They would like to extend an open invitation to artists to submit their books, zines, catalogues and other suitable publications for inclusion in this year’s fair.

Spaces are strictly limited so an open submission format will apply.

A full list of criteria and rules for submission and an Artist Book Submission Form can be found here.
