This year is our fifth Book Arts Fair! Up to 18 book artists, artisans and book arts suppliers will be showcasing and selling their works. There will be book arts demonstrations, too.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to be inspired and motivated by talented local book artists and perhaps even to own a precious item or two that took skill and passion to create.
Book arts is its own art niche. Within its world, there holds a wider variety! At this fair, you’ll be able to meet bookbinders, printmakers, calligraphers, photographers, letterpress printers, paper artists, illustrators and altered book artists and art suppliers.
Something new this year … Journal Fairies (cousins to the Book Fairies). At their table, you can take home a journal for a tiny donation. Makes for a lovely gift or a surprise!
