BABF is a unique forum to present / discuss / exchange knowledge etc. among independent publishing houses, art magazines, zines, books – printed medias. Well organized, a good selection of associated events such as seminars, mini-debates, and other social arrangements. Creates visibility!

This was the second year in a row I had attended the Bergen Art Book Fair. As someone who has traveled the globe attending fairs, this is honestly one of my favorites. Despite that it is relatively small, there is always a very welcoming and democratic feeling that pervades the fair itself, the audience, and associated programming.

BABF is one more than a fair, it is an excellent opportunity to get to know the international scene of independent publications. For AAPIE it was very enriching to be able to share the Rosario and Argentina scene, to know and to be linked with publishing projects from different countries, in order to exchange experiences, share and create networks. BABF 2017 was a terrific experience, do not miss the next!!!

I like there are some activities when the Fair closes, so the people attending the tables, we can also enjoy it. It was great!

I did like all the programs of BABF 2017.
I enjoyed to listen to speakers who have their own experiences on self-publishing in various aspects. I also loved the venue of the fair. I've never seen as beautiful as BABF before. It became my favorite Art Book Fair.
