RPS Artist Book Fair [3/13-28] and Table Space Registration Now Open!


As the first event of the Reminders Photography Stronghold 2021, we will be holding the RPS Artist Book Fair. During the fair, we will exhibit and sell mainly photobooks and artist books that have been produced and sold through RPS. The artists will also be present during the fair to talk with visitors. In addition, the fair will be held with the aim of expanding the scope of the fair through remote communication with local and overseas artists as well as those who cannot come to the venue.

At the same time, we will prepare a table space so that people outside the fair can participate, and we will accept participation from the public. The books must be about photography and can be from galleries, bookstores, your own label, or hand-bound by an individual. There are many people who would like to have a chance to show the actual books and talk to customers about their own books or their company’s books and their works. The Corona disaster has reduced the number of such opportunities. We hope that these people will take this opportunity.
We are looking forward to seeing you there.
