Spring must be on the way as the Essex Book Festival has started! A variety of books were on display to view at Chelmsford library, together with those of friends from Artbookart. A selection of photographs of artist books will remain until Easter. It was great to meet some familar faces, as well as make new aquaintances. I found it particularly interesting talking to Diane Taylor who works in the Conservation studio at the Essex Record Office.
Great to hear that the traditional skills of bookbinding and restoration are being kept alive !
I am also part of Bookscapes Collective.
Bookscapes is a group of six artists that have developed a group practice specialising in site specific interventions and exhibitions.
