Artists Book Alley

Leave a comment


This year’s Richmond Zine Fest will feature an Artists Book Alley sponsored by the Ladies of Letterpress and the VCUarts Bowe House Press. Artists Book Alley is a showcase for artists working in the book format. Similar to zines, artist books are each handmade one at a time with love, but are often made in smaller editions and use more complex printing or binding techniques combined with high quality materials. Printing techniques can include a variety such as intaglio, lithography, silk screen, and letterpress. Bindings often reflect the content of the book and can surprise you with an accordion fold or pop-up.

If you’re a book artist, we invite you to join us. Check the box for the “Artists Book Alley” when registering for a table at the Richmond Zine Fest!
