BABE - Bristol Artists Book Event

Over the weekend more than 50 artist bookmakers, dealers and small presses from Bristol and around the world, will come together at Arnolfini to show and sell their work. The first ever event of its kind in Bristol, BABE has been organised by Arnolfini in conjunction with the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England. BABE provides a great chance to meet and chat to artists about their work and to buy works of art; prices start from just a few pounds.

Bookworks from Arnolfini’s own archived collection will also be on display on the second floor.
