The Vancouver Rare Book, Photograph & Paper Show is coming up this weekend. This is Western Canada’s premier antiquarian event with exhibitors from British Columbia as well as Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, London, Toronto and Montreal. Visitors will see books, fine maps, photographs, ephemera, prints, manuscripts and more.

There will be lots of Canadiana, encompassing local history, local authors and maps, but also books and paper collectibles from all over the world.

October 7 (9am to 4pm),

October 8 (10am to 3pm),

Admission: $10 at the door,

Venue: Heritage Hall, 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, BC.         

The dealers include Aquila Books from Calgary, Bjarne Tokerud and Dale Cournoyer from Victoria, Bison Books and Greenfield Books from Winnipeg, Thompson Rare Books from Hornby Island, and Hourglass Books from Vancouver.

It’s wonderful to see a fair of this nature back on in Vancouver. Heritage Hall is an interesting building, designated a heritage structure by the City of Vancouver in 1974.
