The Seattle Antiquarian Book and Book Arts Show, which begins Saturday, Oct. 8, and continues Sunday at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, is ambrosia for the book lover. Dealers throughout the country come to display (and hopefully sell) collectible books, antique prints, maps, ephemera and more, specializing in every conceivable genre from science fiction to gardening to comic books.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $5; the main entrance to the exhibition hall is located on Mercer St. across from Third Avenue. For a complete list of exhibitors and events, go to the Web site at www.seattlebookfair.com.
