WEST VILLAGE — The Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair will draw dozens of the East Coast's most discerning collectors and vendors to P.S. 3 this weekend for the 37th year running.
Sellers will hawk children's and illustrated books, comics, first editions and art, photography and design books, as well as paper goods like maps, prints, old political fliers and other memorabilia.
Some of the books will date back as far as the 17th century, organizers said.
Organizers say the fair is perfectly situated in the Village, with the neighborhood's literary history, and at the school, known for its artsy families.
"Like the school community itself, the exhibitors and their collections are comprised of interesting, colorful characters and rare gems," the organizers said in an email.
P.S. 3 sponsors the event to raise money for its arts programming.
The cost of admission is $12 on Friday for a three-day pass, $8 on Saturday for a two-day pass, and $4 on Sunday.
Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair, P.S. 3, 490 Hudson St. Hours: Friday 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday noon to 6 p.m., Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
