Much to our dismay, we found out a month or so ago that there would no longer be a Book Arts Fair at OCAD University in early December. This marks the end of over 30 years of fairs at OCAD U, or as it was known back then, just plain OCAD (Ontario College of Art & Design).
However, many of the alumni of this annual fair will be at a new venue this year, with hopes that the new event will become an annual one.
The new fair will be held this year on Saturday, December 2nd, from 10am to 5pm at the Great Hall of the Arts and Letters Club, located at 14 Elm Street in downtown Toronto. This is just West of Yonge Street, between Gerrard and Dundas.
Vendor space is tighter than at the old fair, but we’ll be there with our selection of handmade and marbled papers, along with bookbinding and marbling supplies.
Come out and see us, maybe buy a book or two!
