This was followed by AMBruno's first visit to the biennial Bristol Art Book Event (BABE), at the Arnolfini Gallery (30 April to 1 May 2009), with eleven books by eleven artists: Charlotte Andrew, Sara Dell'Onze, Claire Deniau, Francesca Galeazzi, Judy Goldhill, Philip Lee, Heidi Locher, Sophie Loss, Steve Perfect, Cally Trench, and Mary Yacoob.

New York Art Book Fair 2009

Later in the year, AMBruno went international, with books by twelve artists (Charlotte Andrew, Marco Calí, Sara Dell'Onze, Claire Deniau, Francesca Galeazzi, Judy Goldhill, Philip Lee, Heidi Locher, Sophie Loss, Steve Perfect, Cally Trench, and Mary Yacoob) at the New York Art Book Fair, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Queens (2 to 4 October 2009).

The New York Art Book Fair hosted over 150 international presses, booksellers, and antiquarian dealers presenting a diverse range of the very best in contemporary art publications. It was very well attended, many books were sold, many contacts were made, and it was great fun.
