Take a Gander at the 3rd Annual Bound Book Arts Fair
On Sunday, December 8, book lovers and printing enthusiasts alike were treated to a delightful display of book arts talents at the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto. A wide variety of artisans displayed and sold their wares in a beautiful venue perfectly suited to the task. If you missed the event but still want to see what went down, here are some photos helpfully provided by DA‘s Don McLeod.
Tim and Elke Inkster of the Porcupine’s Quill and the Devil’s Artisan were friendly faces behind the table.
Engraver Mark Huebner displayed some of his prints.
Alan Stein was on hand with some of the Church Street Press’s beautiful printed work.
Chester Gryski, Anne Sutherland and Sandie Eadie took in the fair.
Dr. Ernie Kerr, wood engraver George A. Walker and filmmaker Jeff Winch.
Artist and cartoonist Alan King had a very eye-catching display.
Martin Howard, who has one of the largest collections of antique typewriters in the world, exhibited some of his collection. (You can see more of his collection at antiquetypewriters.com.)
Love the colour and excitement in this bird’s-eye view!
We hope you enjoyed this look at some of the festive and artistic sights at the 2019 Bound Book Arts Fair. Perhaps it will convince you to join us next year?
The Devil's Artisan is remarkable in Canadian publishing in that most of the physical production of our journal is completed in-house at the shop on the Main Street of Erin Village.
We print on a twenty-five inch Heidelberg KORD, typically onto acid-free Zephyr Antique laid. The sheets are then folded, and sewn into signatures on a 1907 model Smyth National Book Sewing machine.
