BABE 2011

Few weeks ago, we went to the new edition of the Bristol Artists Book Event (BABE). Spread over all Arnolfini's floors, more than 80 international artists bookmakers, dealer and small presses presented traditionallly made hand-produced books as well as new format of publishing from luxurious one-off books to zines. Artists use many methods to produce these books, from screenprint, letterpress, etching, litho and woodcut to more modern techniques.


Havn't resisted to this Korean mini books pack from 8 different artists found at Francis Van Maele's shop (Red Fox press with many books available, also from Antic-Ham), and this handmade sketchbook by Owl&Lion from Edinburgh.

PS: Talking about books, the Hay Book Festival is happening this weekend (until the 5th of June) in Hay-On-Wye (Wales).

Du plus petits au plus volumineux, de l'illustré au festival... du moment qu'il y a des livres, je me sens bien ;)
Alors merci... pour les liens en particulier.
