Preparing for the Philadelphia Art Book Fair

:: a display portfolio for prints ::

I've been working long days and evenings getting ready for the Philadelphia Art Book Fair. All the little details for display, like pricing, packaging, etc. always take longer than I think they will, but it's starting to come together.

Mark Cohen will be speaking on Friday. He's one of my favorite artists. Seriously, you have to be pretty important to me and my practice to have made this little list below. There's some pretty heavy hitting programming scheduled, I suggest you take a look.

Philadelphia Art Book Fair 2015

I had to take it a little easy in the studio this weekend because I came down with a nasty cold. But I did manage to do some prep work for the Philadelphia Art Book Fair, coming up April 24th and 25th. I'm excited to participate in this event, which will host a diverse group of institutions, presses, and individual artists. I highly recommend taking a look through the exhibitor list. Closer to the event date, there will also be events and lectures to check out too. 

My main focus will be recent experimental letterpress edition books and prints, but I will also be bringing a small selection of unique handmade journals for sale as well.
