The Leipzig Antiquarian Book Fair (Leipziger Antiquariatsmesse), a standout event in the calendar for enthusiasts of antiquarian books, prints, and autographs, takes place annually in March during the Leipzig Book Fair.

A wide range of exhibitors and visitors, sharing a deep interest in the art of writing, printing, and bookmaking, are drawn each year. Antiquarian bookshops present their carefully selected offerings in a specially designated area. From classic antiquarian shops to rare prints, the fair is an indispensable event for collectors, researchers, and anyone passionate about the printed word and its history.

A distinctive feature of the fair is the broad spectrum of products and services offered. In addition to rare and valuable books, visitors can also find prints and autographs of historical significance. This provides an excellent opportunity to dive into the world of collecting, discover unique finds, and interact directly with experts.

Beyond the buying and selling of antiques, the fair is also a place for exchange and education. A diverse program of lectures, tours, and presentations allows attendees to delve deeper into specific aspects of book history and art. This emphasizes the fair's role as a preserver of cultural heritage and a medium for passing this heritage on to future generations.

The event takes place at the Leipzig Trade Fair, a modern, easily accessible venue that hosts many fairs and congresses annually. The excellent infrastructure and logistics allow exhibitors and visitors to fully concentrate on their passion for books and discovery.
