Just so as you know.
Space nearly all gone
Just to inform anyone who might be thinking of having a table at MABF this year but hasn't quite got round to booking one yet, there are only a few left. We hope to arrange room for a small handful more, if we can, but it won't put the numbers up by much. If you want to book, go to the 2014 Fair page and to the booking form from there. Soon.
Just so as you know.

Liverpool Central Library hosted the Liverpool Artists' Book Fair on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th July, in a truly British mix of endless rain (Friday) and glorious sunshine (Saturday). The children's circular Discover library was a lovely venue for the event and I think both exhibitors and visitors enjoyed their time there. The exhibition of artists' books old and new in the Hornby Library (which finished on Sunday 6th) was also a delight, with some works suspended above the room.
The organiser, Simon Ryder, hopes to be able to hold the fair again in 2015, .
When there's new information concerning the Manchester Artists' Book Fair, or anything else to do with book arts that we think might be of interest, we'll make sure it turns up here.
