What does the Deep Woods have to do with New York? Normally, absolutely nothing, there are no trout in New York.

However, yesterday I got a notice that the Fine Press Book Association (see sidebar link) is sponsoring a new event in conjunction with the Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Show (Shadow Fair) which is in conjunction with the New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory:

~ The Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair

April 5th and 6th, 2014 at the Altman Building on 135 West 18th Street.

Saturday, 5pm-9pm and Sunday 8am-4pm

More details to come as the event has just been announced but if this year proves successful it will join the ranks of the FPBA sponsored fairs at Oak Knoll in Delaware and at Oxford in the UK. More chances for me to catch up with fellow printers and meet those on the collecting side of things. Northern Michigan has lots of trout but no other fine press book publishers.
