TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR 2022 will be divided into 4 different areas. One among them is called the ZINE’S MATE area; it is the part of the fair we used to call “Z booth” until last year, and is where solo artists and publishers can shine. Despite the smallest table size within the fair, this is always where the most energetic and talented ideas come together.
ZINE’S MATE is also the title of the first-ever TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR in 2009 and is also the team name back then. Going back to our initial spirit, we are actively looking for NEW exhibitors for the new ZINE’S MATE area. If you are self-publishing, if it’s your first time at TABF, we highly recommend applying for this area!
