The actual Printing Art Fair

After preparing for the fair and reading the announcements in several blog, the fair itself was indeed a successful event! Letterpress demonstrations were everywhere in the Printing Museum and always big crowds were around the old presses. Because of the rainy day, we displayed our booth on the upper floor, in one intimate environment. People came from long distance, despite the bad weather. I did the paper marbling demonstration for part of the afternoon on the Museum front porch, along with paper making demonstrations by Susy Barbarossa.
I was lucky to have my booth next to the bookbinding demonstrations done by students of the North Bennet Street School; Bexx also had some great miniature books for sale. Among others, great vendors were Kelly of May Day studio, Rifferaff, Jennski, Rainy Planet Press, PaperBreakfast, Seadog Press, Bdesign and together on the same booth Pressbound and Albertine Press. One of my beautiful discovery of the day, were the limited edition books by Laura Davidson. They were represented by another vendor and unfortunately I was not be able to meet her personally. Some images of her book A tool Alphabet are here below. I'm sure other blog will post more pictures of the day, meanwhile, I would like to thank all the people that came to the fair. It was truly a great event and for me exactly one year since I have started this blog!
