Enough to say that I made it to the Baltic on the south bank of the Tyne and checked in for their first Artists' Book Fair. A very enjoyable two days meeting lots of new book artists (and a few old acquaintances) and talking with them; meeting visitors who'd never been to such an event before and talking with them; meeting all the lovely organisers and staff associated with the fair and talking with them (you always talk a lot at book fairs). It wasn't overly busy but it wasn't overly quiet either and I think everyone there had a good time.
One of the pleasure of book arts is how different everyone's work is - book arts is very much an umbrella term. I'm only going to pick out one artist this time, whose work was completely different to anything I had seen at a fair before - Marie Marcano, whose experimental calligraphy was just fantastic.
