Book Arts Fair in Leiden is Only Two Days Away!

We are almost ready for the Boekkunstbeurs — the book arts fair that is organized but the Dutch printing and bookbinding guilds every November in Leiden. Last year we took part in that event and it was amazing!

The Fair lasts for the whole weekend and usually attracts around 1500 visitors that are welcomed by more than 100 participants. Bookbinders, toolmakers, printers, sellers of antique books, papermakers, and many more will offer their products and services. There also should be some workshops for adults and kids there.

What’s even better, the event takes place in the building of a medieval cathedral. What a scenic location!

Come over to buy some stuff, or just to say “hi!” All our items will be sold at a discounted price!

Here is a video I streamed last year:
