In keeping with the mission of the Codex Foundation, to preserve and promote the art and craft of the book, every two years, the foundation hosts an International Book Fair on the campus of the University of California Berkeley.
The inaugural fair, in 2007, gathered together a congress of the world's finest private presses, book artists, artisans, curators, collectors, and scholars in the spirit of an Old West rendezvous. The depth and breadth of the work represented at the fair is archived in the Codex Publication BOOK ART OBJECT
The 2009 bookfair brought together over 140 artists from around the globe. Along with the strong representation of American presses and publishers, the Codex Foundation was pleased to see the attendance of book artists from France, Germany, Japan, England, Canada, Colombia, Italy, Australia, Russia, and Israel.
The fair is acknowledged as the “world's fair” of the book as art and artifact.
