UK book fairs range from the splendour of the ABA's London June fair and the size of the PBFA's York fair in September, to the more sober (but often rewarding) monthly fairs. Some of these are very small indeed, made up of perhaps a dozen or so dealers in a church hall. However, their very diversity is part of their charm and there is always the prospect of a bargain.

Book fairs flourished during the 1980's and 90's. This expansion was often at the expense of bookshops as dealers reduced their costs and took their books on the road. It also had the effect of denuding many provincial shops of their better books as these were swept up in the rising tide of book fairs. See Drif on 'Bookfairies'.

Times have been hard for many of the smaller regional book fairs of late, but a number have recently been revived, and we have even added a handful of new ones. But what is the future for book fairs, and how well are they serving their customers in the 21st Century? We are always keen to receive your comments and suggestions.
