If you’re the kind of bibliophile who uses a bookmark rather than dogear a page and shuns true crime and self-help in favor of C.S. Lewis or Willa Cather, then you’ll feel right at home at this weekend’s First Annual Washington International Antiquarian Bookfair. In addition to collectible tomes ranging in (monetary) value from $20 to $20,000, the fair will feature book signings by illustrator Michael Hague and others, as well as demonstrations of papermaking, paper marbling, and calligraphy. Today from 1 to 8:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. at Mellon Auditorium, 12th & Constitution Ave. NW. $5-10. (202) 789-1049. (Nathalie op de Beeck)
