It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that moving to the Netherlands has changed my life. I've been teaching bookbinding and making books for years, but this year was the first (and the second) time I participated in a proper bookbinding fair.
Went to Haarlem today for the annual book market - Boeken in de Bavo. The market itself is quite nice, 75 sellers (or something like that), quite a diverse choice of books. But what's makes this fair really special is the astonishing location!
Every once in a while the Museum Meermanno in the Hague (The Netherlands) brings a new temporary exhibition. This time they show the works of Quentin Blake, an artist, who had illustrated multiple books, including stories by the world-famous author Roald Dahl.
