Saatchi Gallery 15-18 September 2022

We are very lucky to have this kind of fair… it’s not elitist, it’s not specialist, you don’t have to be a scholar, you just have to be someone with an immense thirst for the glory of books.”

- Stephen Fry, actor, writer and book collector

This year marks the 65th edition of one of the most popular and prestigious rare book fairs in the world.
