The annual trade book festival takes place here in Brussels this weekend but the really interesting stuff (as always) lies around the corner in the (virtually unadvertised) other building - the artist book works.

Walking in I feel immediately 'at home' which is a rare feeling for me. Such abundant evidence of a shared love & enthusiasm. I stop to chat with various people & whether in English or stilted French it's a pleasure to talk about papers, typography, decisions of various kinds. If only all the world were like this.

I buy a tea bag containing shreds of paper stating 'Oui' from a Japanese book artist (name?); an accordion volume 'Pied de Nez' from an Italian - Chloe Francisco; plus this just out from Editions Esperluete ...

A morning well spent.
