Here’s what people are saying about the Chicago Book and Paper Fair:
“If you like browsing antiquarian bookstores, this is a can’t miss event – having so many sellers in one place is great!” – Matt C.
“Awesome! They had a good variety of books within everyone’s price range some were as low as $10 and as high as $15,000. The booksellers were friendly and answered questions thoroughly.” – Deana G.
“The fair was extremely well-organized, sellers helpful and friendly, quality + variety of books excellent, location easily accessible, and free parking was great.” – R.F., Chicago
“Great books, great people!!” – Stephanie
“It was great chatting with knowledgeable vendors with no pressure sales, the large and varied selection was awesome from books, maps, pictures etc. Every reader or collector will find a gem as low as $10 and upwards to $40,000 more” –Dee
“My husband and I attended along with a guest from out of town. We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. We were all very pleasantly surprised at the vast array of offerings-from books to prints to old plat maps! Of course, one has to have an interest in these things to begin with and we all did. We did not allow ourselves enough time for all the booths. The Bridgeport food truck was just what we needed—good food and not the same old thing.” – Joan M., Oak Park
