Turn the Page book fair, Norwich, 3-4 May

If you're near Norwich, do come to the fair. It's in a venue - the atrium of the Forum - that has lots of people passing through, expecting to see "something different" going on, and last year they weren't disappointed. For many visitors, artists' books were something quite new to them, and I overheard many interesting conversations (and had some myself). A lot of talking goes on at book fairs!

Certainly the organisers are doing a super job of promoting the fair - read more about it on the website, turnthepage.org.uk.

Books..but not as you know them 
Limited editions, sculptural books, altered books, multiples,
book art installations and more
all this will be on display to browse, wonder at and buy...
We have an exciting programme of events including Poetry Readings, Demonstrations, Storytelling, Drop-in Workshops,
and the fabulous 1950's French Citreon van 'Dolores' which has been beautifully converted into a mobile artists library by book artist
Lucy-May Schofield

Currently I'm considering and reconsidering what to take along. Something to catch people's eye, something they might want to buy - these need not necessarily be the same thing.
