Last week BOOKMARKS artists’ book and zine fair took over the ECA Fire Station. Over 40 stall holders from all over the UK arrived to sell their wares and attend talks and workshops. The BOOKMARKS 2018 prizewinners also showcased their work on the day.

This year we had a Reading Room, where stallholders and visitors alike could sit and enjoy the books and zines on display. Alongside this print technicians Mhairi Braden and Gen Harrison brought some printmaking fun to the day. Mhairi created BUMPERZINE 2.0 inspired by our day of reckoning: a Brexit themed Doomsday. Stallholders were invited to create an image inspired by the theme, then Mhairi risograph printed the zine. Whilst Gen brought along the beloved Adana Press and invited people to live print their own BOOKMARKS bookmarks!

Here are a few pictures from the day!
