Book Arts Fayre 2012

Saturday 25 February / 11 – 5 / Turner House / FREE

Book Arts Fayre celebrates the ‘artists book’ in all its forms, from hand printed zines to hardback monographs, giving everyone from artists to students, graduates and families the chance to explore and engage in self-publishing and a wealth of contemporary book arts practice from Wales and beyond.

Bringing together an eclectic mix of contributors from both invitation and our open submissions, the gallery will be full to the brim with stalls showcasing works for browsing and for buying, as well as other hand made arty ephemera, tea and cakes!

We are pleased to announce over 60 contributors taking part in BAF6, including Cardiff-based artists Heloise Godfrey and Jorge Lizalde; independent publishers SOURCE Photographic Review from Northern Ireland, Wales’s TANT magazine and Editions FP&CF from Paris; collectives such as Plymouth photography students We Are All Friends Here, Brighton’s PhotoBookShow and students from the University of Wales, Newport. Creative writer, Briony Goffin will also be hosting the Precious Things project – a writing and making workshop for all the family.
