Here’s what people are saying about the 52nd Chicago Book and Paper Fair, held on October 5th, 2013:
“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 parking great.” – R.F., Chicago
“Interesting to see older vintage books, magazines. Hoped for there to be more paper items such as advertising, stationery, etc. Purchased some post cards from the 30′s of Chicago landmarks. More for book collectors.” – L.P.
“Great books, great people!!” – Stephanie
“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
