books and friends and cake

BABE 2017.

So our favourite book fair that only occurs every two years has been and gone in a flash.

The weekend enabled us to meet up with a host of friends who were also showing work – ABPress, HG Makes, Semple Press, Corinne Welch, Elizabeth Willow, Imi Maufe, Andrew Morrison and many more. Highlights included Passport Control organised by Stephen Fowler (and his assistant niece), the wonderful trolley dolly/grumpy tea lady and her cake-laden tea trolley, the various workshops, and of course, having the opportunity to talk to lots of lovely visitors about our work. Thank you to Sarah and Tom for excellent organisation and roll on 2019!

We are happy to report that BABE lived up to all expectations at the weekend. We have waited many years to exhibit as part of this iconic book fair and it didn’t disappoint. It was lovely to catch up with old friends and finally put names to faces of contacts that we have made through email.

Visitors were genuinely interested in our work and sales were reasonably brisk! Thank you to everyone that came along for a chat or even bought a book, and to the organizers who made it such a success.

Meanwhile at the Fruitmarket in Edinburgh, Barrie met up with Caseroom collaborators Ken Cockburn and Ali Bowden and also had a successful fair. His book, Onion Merzpoem No.8 was purchased by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art for their Library Collection.
