In its fifth year, BOOKMARKS artists’ book fair will again provide a stimulating platform for visitors to explore artists’ books and zines made by practitioners from across Scotland and further afield. Exploring the artists’ book in its broadest sense, BOOKMARKS is a first stop for those interested in bookmaking as an artistic practice. BOOKMARKS focuses on academic study, exploring how artists’ books are used, promoted and created in educational settings.

This year there are a number of exciting additions including a pop-up reading room and Showcase of the BOOKMARKS PRIZE winners 2018, looking at their work one year later. The BOOKMARKS staff and student board are also finalising a range of talks, workshops and exhibitions to run alongside the fair.

Previous participants include students from ECA, Glasgow School of Art, Edinburgh College and Duncan of Jordanstone as well as Crisps, Edinburgh Zine Library, Out of the Blueprint and David Faithfull. The fair will offer visitors the chance to see and handle the work, meet the artists and designers and purchase an exciting array of artists’ books and zines.
