The book is made! Our artist-in-residence, Angie Butler, has been working with us on the Making Books in Bristol project to create a book which self-consciously and playfully uses its own structure to reflect on and continue the conversations which began earlier in the year when we invited local book professionals to discuss their lives with books.
On 5 December the book will be on view to the public for the first time, and Angie will be discussing the process of making it and those who have contributed along the way. We are excited to welcome back everyone who attended the public talks in May and June at the Central Library and Folk House, and also anyone who is interested in artists’ books, publishing, letterpress printing, bibliography, and book culture in general.
The book launch is free and open to all, but please book here so that we can plan numbers for catering purposes. Details of the venue are available on the booking page and on the poster below. Please spread the word and we look forward to seeing you there.
