I’m up in Glasgow this weekend for the Glasgow International Artists Bookfair. Yesterday was great with many visitors to the fair and amazing work on show. The organizers Helen and Harald have done a great job and the fair has a really nice atmosphere.

I got out early Saturday morning before the fair opened with a camera to get a few photos around Glasgow city centre.
