B – active, social, and experimental artists’ book fair, Cardiff Saturday 29 August

Given how close We Are Cardiff Press is to publishing OUR first book of short stories (November, people, NOVEMBER!!!), we thought we’d get you in the mood for some alternative literature with g39‘s first artist book fair.

They are looking to connect DIY self publishing, small artist book publishers, and innovators in the book form. Through exhibition, sales, performance, and discussion, they plan to explore the form of artists’ books today.
