PAGES Leeds | International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair 

The Tetley, Leeds, 4th – 5th March 2017,
10am – 5pm Admission free

Books, book art and all things artist book related- a great free day out. Inspiring books to read and handle, the artists and makers, talks, refreshments, and easy parking just outside.

Carole King will be showing a selection of tunnel books as well as concertina books from the ‘Treelines’ series, hand stitched and bound sketchbooks and handprinted papers.
Glenn Ibbitson is bringing his new book ‘Drought’ and accompanying prints; his book ‘Eclipse’, created from work made in collaboration with a Japanese calligrapher in response to the homeless of Japan, and other catalogues and publications.

Books using Coptic Binding: a workshop with Carole King

 Make a coptic bound book with hard covers and a decorative stitched open spine, suitable for use as a sketchbook, notebook, diary or journal. 

During this one day workshop participants will complete an A5 size book (portrait format) filled with drawing quality paper.

Coptic binding secures the pages so that they will open flat on a table : it enables you to combine multiple types of paper within one book.

Skills required: Just accurate measurement, a bit of patience and simple sewing skills required
