The legacy of Florida booksellers

Welcome to the FABA Museum. For more than three decades, the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers Association has been serving the state's rare book industry.

Our digital museum highlights some of the events that have shaped the business, especially the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, which began in 1982 as part of the FABA mission to develop the antiquarian book industry.  Please visit our three online galleries.

At right, Michael Slicker, owner of Lighthouse Books, ABAA, in St. Petersburg, Florida, was the founding chairman of the book fair. He recalls the early days in this video originally produced to mark the 30th anniversary. 

The FABA Museum is a work in progress. If you have information or images you believe ought to be included in the FABA Museum, please let us know. Send an email to fabamuseum@floridabooksellers.com
