About the Fair

Designers & Books Fair 2015™ is a must for anyone who is interested in design and loves books.

The Fair focuses on all aspects of design — architecture, experience design, fashion, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture, product and industrial design, and urban design — and will feature:

  • Books on sale from more than 70 different European, Asian, and American publishers and booksellers, including antiquarian dealers. Book giveaways from many publishers, too.
  • Programs featuring many esteemed speakers including Milton Glaser, Steven Heller, Irma Boom, Juliet Kinchin, Peter Bohlin, Philip Pearlman, and Gary Hustwit.
  • The launch of a new book signing program including “Experiences with Authors,™” where you can win exclusive invitations to special behind-the-scenes activities with your favorite authors — including André Leon Talley, Louise Fili, Julie Iovine, Chip Kidd, and Fern Mallis.

We hope you’ll join us the first weekend in October. For additional information, call (212) 777-9080 or email

Designers & Books Fair 2015™ is a project of Designers & Books — in collaboration with the Fashion Institute of Technology.
