St. Louis Fine Print, Rare Book & Paper Arts Fair

The St. Louis Mercantile Library’s eighth annual event will feature thirty local and national fine print and rare book dealers. Start your personal celebration of the city’s 250th birthday with a gift to yourself! This is your chance to acquire a piece of St. Louis history, whether a rare publication, an historic map, a charming postcard or a fine art print by one of the city’s own artists. You’ll find all this and more at St. Louis’ premier collectors’ event. Whether you are looking for that elusive first edition, an exquisite tooled binding, antique paper money, decorative botanicals, or prints by American, Old Master or contemporary artists, the Fair has something for you! A Preview Party and Silent Auction on Friday night launch the Fair, followed by full days on Saturday and Sunday that include special demonstrations by artists. Proceeds benefit the Mercantile Library’s collections acquisition and conservation funds.
