I have just spent 2 fabulous days at the Baltic, exhibiting as part of the Baltic Artist’s Book Fair. The fair consisted of a wonderfully diverse collection of book artist’s and their work all of whom were generous and happy to discuss their practices and ideas.

Below gives just a small snippet of some of the artists who were taking part to give a tiny taste of the event.
