The Original Manhattan Vintage Book, Ephemera, & Fine Press Book Fair Just Gets Bigger & Better Every Year!
NEW YORK, NY – MARCH 7, 2020: Who Knows The Best Book Fairs In New York City? The Shadow Show Knows! Flamingo Eventz and Lamont Cranston once again step out of the shadows to celebrate Rare Book Week in New York City with the 11th Anniversary Show of The Manhattan Vintage Book, Ephemera, & Fine Press Book Fair! Known as The Shadow Show because it is held in conjunction with the well-known New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory, this year it will be held on Saturday March 7, 2020.
This show has grown steadily since its inception in 2009 to present some of the finest Vintage & Antiquarian Book and Ephemera Dealers in America, Canada and Europe – many of whom are members of ABAA, ILAB, ESA, PADA, MARIAB, MABA, LIABDA and other professional groups – all gathered together for one fabulous weekend to offer an incredible Vintage Book & Ephemera adventure! The inclusion of The Fine Press Book Fair in 2014 added an exciting new dimension to the show and brought it to a new level of prominence.
As always, the fair will present an outstanding array of fine, rare and unusual old books, as well as poetry, prose, political, social, historical, children's series, maps, postcards, autographs, prints, posters, World’s Fair, and much, much more.
