UK book fairs range from the splendour of the ABA's London summer fair and the size of the PBFA's York fair in September, to the more sober (but often rewarding) regular regional fairs. Some of these are very small indeed, made up of perhaps a dozen or so dealers in a church hall - and they can be found all around the country.

Visiting even the smallest of these fairs can offer access to an extraordinary range of printed material - not just books but ephemera, prints, posters, maps - and increasingly you might also find postcards, photographs, vinyl, and sometimes associated collectables

So whilst it's true that the number of book fairs has declined from their heyday in the 1990's (when Drif blamed them for denuding many provincial shops of their better books) they continue to play a vital role in the touchy- feely world of physical book buying.

And you can play a part in ensuring that they continue to thrive by sharing your thoughts and experiences in a review - there is a comment link on every listing.
