[BKARTS] Artists' Book Fair in Philadelphia, Nov. 17th

BOOK / PAPER / SCISSORS: Artist's Book Fair

The Philadelphia Center for the Book and the Free Library of
Philadelphia present BOOK / PAPER / SCISSORS: Artist's Book Fair on
Saturday, November 17, from 10 am to 4 pm, at the Free Library of
Philadelphia, 1901 Vine Street. 

Come to look, come to shop, come to play. This event features artists'
books, handmade paper art, prints, paper jewelry, blank books . . . if
it's paper-based art, it's here. There will be more than 30 artists
selling and showing work, an exhibit of recent acquisitions from the
Free Library's Artists' Book collection (up in the Print & Picture
Collection), and book and paper workshops that are kid and klutz
friendly. Forget about those yawn-inspiring holiday gifts. You will find
unique (and affordable) works of art here suitable for everyone on your
list - or you may just look, enjoy and find inspiration for your own
creativity at this festive event.

The Philadelphia Center for the Book is an organization with roots in
both the venerable history of traditional book arts and in the
exploration of experimental book forms of the 21st century. Drawing on
the rich cultural traditions of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Center
for the Book serves as a catalyst to advance the book as a vital
contemporary art form, connecting the diverse community of institutions
and individuals whose passion is books. For information about the
Philadelphia Center for the Book contact:

The Print and Picture Collection of The Free Library of Philadelphia, in
addition to a circulating picture collection of news photographs and
