Welcome

The Book Band is a collaborative group of book artists.

Our purpose is to promote our work, collaborative and individual, and book-art more widely whilst sharing skills, ideas and encouragement with the group. If we sell some work along the way, that will justify our existence.

Future book fairs and exhibitions

We look forward to showing our work at the Clevedon Celebration of the Book as part of their Literary Festival on 11 June.

We were very excited to be take part in this year’s amazing Book Arts Bristol Event: BABE at Bower Ashton on 23/24 April. We had a lot of interest in our work and loved the opportunity to network with many other artists book-makers from all over the world. You can see lots of images of the show in our Instagram feed below.

Our table at the Printed Bound printmaking and artists book fair at Sunny Bank Mills near Leeds on 2/3 April attracted a lot of interest and we thoroughly enjoyed showing our work to the lovely visitors who arrived in large numbers. You can see some images on our Instagram feed below.

Our collection of Ten Books titled ‘Ten Ways of Seeing’ is being included in the Turn the Page NPPL fair in Norwich on 27/28 May. It was accepted for the virtual exhibition held in 2021 but this is your opportunity to see it for real.

Past fairs and exhibitions

We have a video in the BABE Lost Weekend festival 2021 virtual exhibition at the Arnolfini. You can see all the videos here (ours is Number 95).
