PUBLICATION FAIR 2019
PUBLICATION FAIR is a one-day market of local Pacific Northwest makers and sellers in all things printed matter. Publication Fair was conceived of and founded by PATRICIA NO in 2009 through PUBLICATION STUDIO (which she also co-founded in 2009) as a way to connect the vibrant publishing community to each other and to the public. For eight years, she organized and ran Publication Fair with Publication Studio partner Antonia Pinter. Since 2017, the fair has been organized and run by Helmy Membre ñ o, an active presence at Publication Fair since the very beginning.
Sponsored and hosted by THE CLEANERS at ACE HOTEL PORTLAND , Publication Fair celebrates its 10th ANNIVERSARY this December. Many of the participants have been in attendance every single year, a note to the thriving community of diverse book makers, sellers, and publishers in Portland. This year’s fair, being the 10th anniversary, we mark the occasion with special screen printed posters and tote-bags. The 31 vendors themselves will be showcasing new publications, out-of-print editions, posters, zines, rare books, ephemera, and, of course, their own totes.
