The Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Fair and The Fine Press Book Fair Move Uptown to Celebrate Rare Book Week in New York City

New Location -- The Church of St. Vincent Ferrer at 869 Lexington Avenue at 66th Street on Saturday, April 11, 2015

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 09, 2015) - Who Knows The Best Book Fairs In New York City? The Shadow Show Knows! Flamingo Eventz and Lamont Cranston step out of the shadows to celebrate Rare Book Week in New York City by announcing the return of The Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Fair and The Fine Press Book Fair! Known as The Shadow Show because it is held in conjunction with the well-known New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory, this year it will be held on Saturday April 11, 2015.

And new this year, the show has moved uptown (directly across the street from The Park Avenue Armory) to The Church of St. Vincent Ferrer, 869 Lexington Avenue at 66th Street, New York, NY 10065.

This exceptional show has grown steadily since its inception in 2009 to present some of the finest Vintage & Antiquarian Book and Ephemera Dealers in America, Canada and Europe -- many of whom are members of ABAA, ILAB, ESA, PADA, MARIAB, MABA, LIABDA and other professional groups -- all gathered together for one fabulous weekend to offer an incredible Vintage Book & Ephemera adventure! Last year, The Fine Press Book Fair was added, which doubled the size of the show and brought it to a new level of prominence. Now, with this move to the doorstep of the Armory and the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, the show's producers bring an unprecedented opportunity and ease of enjoyment to the Vintage Book World.

As always, the fair will present an outstanding array of fine, rare and unusual old books, as well as poetry, prose, political, social, historical, children's series, maps, postcards, autographs, prints, posters, World's Fair, and much, much more. A special feature found only at Flamingo Shows will be Antiques Appraisals by John Bruno and guest appraisers on Sunday 1-3pm at $5/item!
