I had an intersting time over the last two days at the Glasgow International Artist Bookfair, the first such event to take place in Glasgow. As mentioned before we didn't have a table and above is the trolley we created to sell our wares. It was really god fun pushing the trolley around the place, it did mean I had to be on my feet for two whole days but it did allow me to move to wherever I fancie and meant I could walk over and chat to the other stall hodlers and check out their stuff. The stuff in question was a huge variety of artist books ranging from short one line cards, to artist-zines, book sculptures and massive leather bound prints.

*Mucho gracious to Ann and Gav for their assistance in getting the trolley ready for the show.

Well we are in another book fair this coming weekend. Its part of the Glasgow International Festival and takes place in the Royal Concert Hall from 11am - 6pm Friday 25th & Saturday 26th April. For more information, the list of other artist involved, maps and all other do-das visit http://www.giab.org.uk/.
Sadly we found out about the show too late to get one of the tables so instead we were asked to come up with an alternative method of showing the books. Our alternative method is shown above, a nice old trolley found in a skip. Over the next two nights it will be going through a full face lift and will become a beautiful trolley of books selling wonderous or at least very brightly coloured.
Books on sale will include - "Tales from the Edge", "Himp Vol 1", "Space Adventures 1" and "B for Boredom". All are excellant gifts for the loved ones in your life and, if you can't make it down to what promises to be a very entertaining show this weekend, the books are availible from our site, just drop us an email to sort out purchase.

There is a festival taking place in the Southside of the Glasgow this summer and I put together a few ideas as a pitch for the posters/ map/ flyer. Sadly, I lost out on the final vote. Looking forward to the festival though and to seeing the poster I lost out too.
