Founded in 2017 by Randi Hopkins & Oliver Mak, the Boston Art Book Fair (BosABF) is a free, all-ages three-day art event uniting all levels of the arts community. Boston Art Book Fair is presented by Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) and Bodega. In alignment with the BCA mission to support Boston's working artists, approximately one-third of the participating vendors are local artists, creators, and businesses. BosABF also features some of the most respected and innovative international publishing houses and independent presses, connecting Boston with the national art community and facilitating connection between Boston creatives and prospective publishing partners. Boston Art Book Fair welcomes all audiences; from sophisticated art collectors to a teenager buying their first zine. In 2019 the BosABF more than doubled in size, moving into the iconic Cyclorama and welcoming more than 130 exhibitors and 5,000 guests, while featuring panel discussions, film screenings, and art installations.
