A fair titled "art book in China" took place at the Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum from Aug 11 to 13, featuring more than 100 international artists and publishers, and a free entry for anyone else who wanted to join.

The fair was initiated by DREAMER FTY in 2015, a creative working institution whose main media is books. The event aimed at filling the gap of China's art book fair market, while simultaneously gathering a group of artist books and independent publications.

The event started off smoothly and became a stage for various creative minds from around the world – excellent foreign independent publications have taken part in the exhibitions and talk shows, and pioneering Chinese prints were also introduced to different areas.
