COMPETITION: Tell Us What You Love About Books to Win!


Why do you love your favourite book? Where did your book collecting begin? What makes you a bibliophile?

We would like to invite you to write a short paragraph (up to 500 words) on any subject related to book collecting and your love of books. Whatever you write - serious, amusing or quirky - it should be honest and from the heart. If you mention the ABA Chelsea Rare Book Fair in your entry and send photos, then all the better!

We will select our favourites to publish on the ABA Chelsea Rare Book Fair website and on social media, with your name, pseudonym or anonymously if preferred. One lucky winner will receive a £250 voucher to spend at the Fair and the runners-up will receive vouchers for free tea & cake at the Fair café.

Entries should be submitted by email to Please include: Chelsea Competition Entry in the subject line. The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 15th September. Good luck!
