It’s a wonderful opportunity to be inspired and influenced by talented local book artists and perhaps even to own a precious item that took much skill and passion to create.

Book arts may seem a small niche; but within its world, there is a wide variety! At this  fair, you’ll be able to meet bookbinders, printmakers, calligraphers, photographers, letterpress printers, authors, paper artists, illustrators and altered book artists.

This is a free event open to the public at the Vancouver Public Library (central library in Vancouver downtown), lower level in the combined Peter Kaye and Alma VanDusen rooms.
