Welcome to the 53rd California International Antiquarian Book Fair in Pasadena California! In 2020, we are excited to feature Women's Suffrage in the United States with special exhibits and panels. We’re also hosting a celebration of the science fiction and fantasy writer Ray Bradbury and continuing our support for the California Young Book Collector's Prize. We look forward to seeing you at our three-day event, which is recognized as one of the largest and most prestigious antiquarian book fairs in the world.


"Book fairs mean different things to different people; to me, they are all about wonder and discovery. Visitors come face to face with fine works they may have only heard about, or saw in a museum or specialty library, and here, in this book fair, they have the opportunity to see, hold or even go home with these admired treasures. Where else can such magic happen?"
- Vic Zoschak, ABAA President
