58th Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show
Sunday, October 13, 2013

Spend the day with like-minded book-lovers,
as we browse thousands upon thousands of 
collectible books, photographs, art prints, posters,
postcards, maps, ephemera and so much more
at the MIDWEST'S LARGEST antiquarian book and paper show.

Join us and experience Lansing's premier literary event! 
Bibliophiles, collectors and dealers come from near and far 
to enjoy this one-of-a-kind show. 

Centuries-old illuminated manuscripts and Gutenberg bible pages
may be displayed alongside rare sports and Hollywood memorabilia.
20th Century propaganda posters and frame-worthy magazine covers
deserve your perusal. New and classic children's literature favorites
are sure to please, and perhaps you'll finally discover that 
rare first edition or signed copy of your favorite novel.

The Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show has become a regular
event for book and paper enthusiasts from across the country.

You don't have to be a collector to enjoy yourself at the show.  
But beware -- you might catch the bug as you mingle with 
novice collectors and trained specialists browsing the 
seemingly endless selection of items for sale.

The show has over 200 tables of vintage books, magazines, postcards,
photographs, maps and paper items of all kinds. Dealers from across the United States and Canada offer something for everyone, including first editions, signed books, children's and illustrated books, military history, regional histories, mysteries, cookbooks, & sports collectibles and so much more.

Bring the whole family! The show is easily navigable, 
with wide aisles that allow easy access for wheelchairs and strollers.
Enjoy soothing acoustic music by local musicians,
and have a bite to eat from the on-site concessions.

Please join us on Sunday, October 13th 
at the Lansing Center (333 E. Michigan Avenue, Lansing MI)
