The venue is less than three years old and sits in the middle of Silver Spring town centre. The fair presents a selection of printmaking, bookbinding, collectors books and paper making craft, as well as the conference and series of demosntrations lined up.
The Sunderland book Project has proved a huge success with visitors, amazed at the variety and range of contributions.
Earlier in the day I managed to make Libby Clarke’s talk, which centred on her connection with her practice and audience participation with her work.
Response from visitors to the fair is positive and encouraging, with lots of visitors from Baltimore checking in to see the work on display.
Lei Lei, just one of the exhibitiors taking part in the fair was awarded a prize from the jurors and looking at her work you can certaibly see why!
Outside the Fair, Jesse Mcafee, from The Print Factory
a mobile art collective that began in Kansas City in 2007, creates traveling hand made mobile presses. The fair continues tomorrow when I give my presentation on the Sunderland Book Project.
