Artbookart Artists Book Fair at HOFS.
Artbookart are delighted to announce a second Artists Book Fair, to be held at Hadleigh Old Fire Station (HOFS), Hadleigh on Saturday 15th March 2014
This is an exciting opportunity for Book Artists in the South East to come together and showcase their work. The last event proved very popular with both artists and visitors, with a wide range of approaches to working with books.
The previous event was oversubscribed, so it is advisable to submit applications early so as not to be disappointed.
We hope you are able to join us on the day.
You can get further details of the fair and an application form by leaving a message on our contact page or by emailing Chris at
*Hadleigh is in Essex located on the A13, six miles west of Southend-on-Sea.

Karen Apps presented her puppet made from Fifty Shades of Grey, as featured on the One Show earlier in the summer.
Also included was Louise Swain's Book of Dreams, Lola Swain's hand-marbled journals, along with Sally Chinea's embroidered cover of Jane Eyre.
