Artists’ Book Fair at The Bluecoat

November 16, 2011

The Bluecoat  is holding an artists’ book fair this coming Saturday, 19th November.

Original and outstanding artworks purposely designed in book form in an astonishing variety of shapes and styles will be on display and available to buy. The beautiful designs are often published directly by the artists, with works from a range of makers and artists including local artist Elizabeth Willow, staff and students from Wirral Met and Cafè Royale Books, whose publications are held in collections belonging to the Tate, V&A, MoMA and the Japan Museum of 21st Century Art. If you’re looking for a unique and unusual Christmas gift idea for a literature or art lover, you couldn’t ask for anything better.

For an Saturday afternoon out, you may also want to combine your visit to browse this extraordinary collection of bookish art with a visit to the exhibition of Matisse’s beautiful illustrated books currently showing at the Walker Art Gallery.

The artists’ book fair is on from 11am to 5pm and is free.
