Manchester Artists’ Book Fair 2012

Manchester Artists’ Book Fair, 2011

tumblr_ls3iekDhmy1qdlvjpo1_500I’ve just been to the 6th Manchester Artists’ Book Fair, a free yearly event that celebrates book arts, small press publishing and traditional printmaking methods such as linocut, woodcut, etching, screen printing and letterpress.  The fair included 50 stands showing artists’ books, zines and the works of small publishers from all around the UK. There were workshops and demonstrations for all to enjoy and participate in. I created three limited editions of handmade books for the fair, Origami Girl (pictured), Bestiary and Humbugs, an illustrated haiku about some very tasty snails.
