01. ABOUT

Art Book Osaka is a book fair specializing in art-related books, which will be held for the first time in Osaka City in May 2024, organized by the Art Book Osaka Executive Committee in cooperation with “Art Tokku”  organized by Daishinsha Delight Co., Ltd.  The fair will give artists who publish books as part of their art activities in Japan and abroad, sales and business opportunities, and also provide the general public with a chance to get close to a wide range of art. In addition, we hope to provide an opportunity to focus attention on the industry that is improving its unique printing and bookbinding techniques in the midst of a time when the presence of paper media is becoming less important due to the rise of web-based media. 
With the cooperation of the Executive Committee, exhibitors, visitors, and sponsors, we plan to expand the scale of the fair and make it an annual event so that we can continue to provide opportunities for everyone to connect through art.
