More than 80 of the nation’s most prestigious dealers in rare and collectible books will be at the Denver Mart for the 29th annual Rocky Mountain Book & Paper Fair. For booklovers across the region, it’s an annual weekend not to be missed. Of the thousands of books offered, the fair typically includes some once-in-a-lifetime finds. There is truly something for everyone, from museum-quality volumes for the serious collector to books suited for casual gift-giving. The largest event of its kind between Chicago and California, the Rocky Mountain Book & Paper Fair also offers a wealth of vintage and rare paper goods, including postcards, maps, art prints, old travel brochures, posters, ads and ephemera from decades – and centuries – past.
This year’s theme, “To Have and To Hold,” offers more reasons to attend the fair. Denver’s best experts in the fields of book, paper, maps, prints, art objects, and textiles will speak and give demonstration throughout the weekend.
