Artists’ book markets, fairs and exhibitions are an excellent way to meet the makers, designers and creators of a range of artwork that can be described as ‘artist’s books’.  I took part in a book fair in  in Milan 2013.  Although, most of the visitors spoke only Italian, this did not prevent  discussion and exchange between visitors and exhibitors. The two day event included paper making demonstrations, typesetting demonstrations, publishers talks, music and obviously time for one or two aperitifs!


The Artists’ Book Market @BALTIC 5 & 6 December 10-5pm plans to build on the success of last years event, with more workshops, film screenings and engaging dialogue for visitors and exhibitors to be part of, as well as a wide range of exhibiting stall holders, with a vast array of work to show and sell.  Deadline for exhibitors application is 1st October 2014.  Fee for two days is £60.  Selection is through application.
