Meet over 25 of your favorite design authors, who will be signing their newest books, at Designers & Books Fair 2015™ this weekend—Friday evening, October 2 through Sunday, October 4—at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

And that’s not all: designated book purchases you make at the Fair automatically enter your name in more than 20 drawings to win unique Experiences with Authors.™ Would you like a private visit to graphic designer Louise Fili’s studio plus gelato with the designer? Your portrait drawn by the fashion illustrator for Bloomingdale’s? A tour of jazz legend Louis Armstrong’s house by the Wall Street Journal’s architecture critic? Lunch at MoMA with Charles Eames’s grandson and noted author? Designers & Books Fair 2015 is your chance!
