You’ll find here included a visual archive of the publications presented during the annual Vancouver Art Book Fair, 2018, on the first floor of the ECUAD Library. These publications were accompanied by original art provided on loan by the invited artists, and a few photographs of the installation can be found below.

“The VABF Library & Archive has been a recurring hub at the VABF, giving publishers who can’t attend the opportunity to donate two copies of any book for display. This year, local artists have been invited to donate copies of their publications in order to increase the presence of the Vancouver scene within the collection and original art works will be exhibited alongside these new additions.”
Invited artists include: Tim Barnard, Marc Bell, Cathy Busby, Ben Duncan, Hiller Goodspeed, Phaedra Harder & Stephanie McDonell, Nathan Jones, Garry Neill Kennedy, Donato Mancini, Hei Lam Ng, Cole Pauls, Sylvie Ringer, and Dan Starling.
New publications donated by out-of-town artists, unable to attend the Fair, were marked with custom printed Post-It Notes indicating ‘New Addition 2018’.
Finally, selections from the existing archive, chosen to harmonize with the first two groups of publications, were titled ‘Selection From The Archive’. Enjoy!
