Bound Art Book Fair is an annual celebration of artist publishing practices based in Manchester, UK. We welcome artist publishers and collectives, small presses, independent publishers, galleries and distributors who are committed to expanding the potential of publishing to communicate radical ideas and amplify underrepresented voices.

Bound Art Book Fair's mission is to provide a platform for a diverse and international range of projects and exhibitors to share their work and reach new audiences, with a particular focus on those from the North of England. We build and sustain communities around print publishing practices whilst exploring the potential for expanded forms of publishing that engage or interact with performance, music, sculpture, fashion, moving image and activism. Bound also instigates interim projects generating new publications and commissions, and we have worked with partners including the Working Class Movement Library, Rare Mags, Derby International Photography Festival, and Sounds from the Other City.
