As the paper, the ink, and the adhesive used in bookbinding ages, a book’s chemical properties change, resulting in that distinctive old book smell. And the 36th Annual Ann Arbor Book Fair promises plenty of nostalgically scented and yellowed pages. Peruse through stacks of first editions, signed copies of old and rare collectible books, regional maps, and other Americana. Over 40 dealers from across the US tote their antique tomes to Ann Arbor for readers and collectors to admire and purchase.

11am-5pm Sunday, May 17. $5.  Michigan Union Ballroom, 530 S. State St. 734-995-1891.
