SGABF serves as a platform that celebrates and represents artists' books, zines, monographs, contemporary art editions, and other printed ephemera. Over the course of the weekend, the fair is complemented by a range of programmes such as talks and performances. These programmes aim to provide resources that will deepen the appreciation and increase the awareness of the printed matter.

Its seventh year running, SGABF has well established itself as one of the leading art book fairs in Asia. While the fair continues to grow in exhibitors and audience, it remains committed to building an environment of support for artists, small and/or independent presses, and publishers working in the medium. SGABF serves to capture the energy and vision of artists, and believes in evolving and presenting the diversity of our community, as well as exposing the audience to new and innovative publishing practices.
