Category: A Travelling Exhibition of Artist Books
Artists have shared skills in book binding, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, writing and audio with a group of young artists to make a series of handmade books centred around the theme of Category. All book works are presented in a unique travelling vessel made up of modified vintage suitcases and trunks designed by Furniture Maker Nick James.
Book Apothecary is inspired by the idea of book and botanical categorisation systems, proving that books can be visual as well as informative.
Catch Book Apothecary on its travels and explore hidden and unusual handmade books.
11am – 4pm : DROP-IN BOOK MAKING WORKSHOP
PEMBERTON ROOMS, PALACE GREEN, DURHAM DH1 3RN
The Book Apothecary will also be roaming around the food festival on Palace Green. If it rains it will come into the Cafe area of the food festival tent next to the bookstalls.
