After spending this last week preparing for the Handmade & Bound fair on Sunday, arriving at the venue (after a rather rainy journey) it was great to see such a good turnout of book artists, illustrators and designers, zinesters and small presses, printmakers and everyone in between.
Kali and I shared a table this year (I was on the left, but by the time I took this photo my half of the table looked a little barren).
The lovely Karoline’s table over in the ‘Gocco corner’ of the room. I do love a bit of silver Gocco ink…
Congratulations to Kali for winning second place in the Shepherd’s Bookbinders ‘Best in Show’ prize, and to LCC student Moonkeum for winning first prize (and a particularly lovely rosette).
