ACID–FREE is pleased to announce the return of the Los Angeles Art Book Market & Bazaar, a three-day event organized by a programming committee of L.A.-based publishers, librarians, and curators, hosted by Blum & Poe Los Angeles.
Following the success of our inaugural Market in 2018 and our temporary installation at Frieze Los Angeles (‘Acid–Frieze’), join us November 1–3 for the 2019 Acid-Free Los Angeles Art Book Market.
