BALTIC becomes a market place of exhibiting and selling book stalls from artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, artist’s groups, zine artists and bookbinders. A programme of talks, workshops and screenings offer exciting opportunities to get involved and learn more about artists’ books. Have a go at traditional book binding or turn your creativity to e-books. This year we have also invited specialist contributions from NewBridge Off-Site, a mobile, interactive pod from NewBridge Books, who will host a platform for discussions around the potentials of small press and digital publishing, and North East Photography Network who will present a range of photographic publications alongside a series of talks to open a critical dialogue around the work on display.
