The Food Book Fair is the first ever event bringing together food publications from around the world along side a dynamic programming.

*UPDATE* It's become clear that we'd set our goal too high.  We are moving the Food Book Fair to a more manageable location that we do not have to build out.  Our original space was 40,000 square feet, (HUGE) hence the large Kickstarter goal.  We lost a funder and we were set on this location, however, we've found a better option.  Please visit: www.foodbookfair.com, add your name to the list and we'll alert you when tickets go on sale.  Thanks!

The Poster (pictured below) is the gorgeous work of Maira Kalman and Rick Meyerowitz.  The New York Sub Culinary Map is the official poster of the Food Book Fair.  Donate now to make sure you get a copy!  A larger donation lands you a LIMITED EDITION signed copy, a priceless reward for your backing.
