Why Become a Member?
VABF Members are part of an engaged community that is passionate about art publishing in Vancouver and beyond. In addition to the Member Benefits they receive, Members contribute to the sustainability and growth of the annual Vancouver Art Book Fair—keeping the event free, while also allowing us to bring out international artists and to pay fair fees to artists, presenters and arts workers.
