From rare, signed books to autographed photos and fine art prints, you’ll get it all at Brooklyn Books, Art, Photos and Design Expo (BrooklynBAPD) held at The Brooklyn Expo Center (9/19-20). BrooklynBAPD is a two-day ‘feast’ for anyone who loves vintage books, art, collectible autographs, and vintage photographs. The art and design row also features dealers of mid-century and vintage jewelry. You’ll have the chance to find out details about your favorite artists, discover new ones, and better yet – you can actually buy the stuff on display. It’ll be like entering a mini museum and walking home with your favorite piece!
Exhibitors from all parts of the country are coming to town once again for the second annual BrooklynBAPD, and will feature more than 145 dealers from 21 states, Canada and Spain and an exciting range of books, art, ephemera, maps, prints, fine art and mid-century design.
To add to the excitement, The Lewis Carroll Society of North America will host a booth with rare editions of the 150-year-old classic, Alice in Wonderland, and present interpretative readings of “The Mad Tea Party” as part of the classic’s Alice 150 celebration at 1pm and 3pm each day.
And Richard Minsky, author of The Art of American Book Covers 1875-1930, will host an exhibit that explores and displays covers from his colorful book, accompanied by a book signing and talk at 2:00 pm each day.
