Last time the Designers + Books Book Fair was held, it was cut short by Hurricane Sandy. This time the U.S. Weather Service predicts clear skies and no humidity, the perfect weather to soak up books old and new. Founder and organizer Steve Kroeter has arranged 70 publishers, 10 rare book dealers, seven programs featuring “noted design and art community members such as Milton Glaser, Irma Boom, Daniel Libeskind, Peter Bohlin and Philip Pearlstein,” the launch of Ladislav Sutnar: Visual Design in Action, numerous book signings and …

A completely new program—”Experiences with Authors”—which offers those who purchase books at the fair the chance to win special experience prizes with an array of designers such as Michael Bierut, Louise Fili, Chip Kidd, DJ Stout, Fern Mallis, Jesse Reed/Hamish Smyth, André Leon Talley, Gary Hustwit, Julie Iovine, Eames Demetrios and many more.

The complete list of Experience prizes is listed here. So mark your calendar for 6–9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2; 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3; and 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Sunday, Oct 4, and join the designers and books clan. More information can be found here.
