A new book arts fair at the end of September

hiw_printexpo_social_assets-ig-post-1080x1080-a-v2A new book arts fair has popped up in the Toronto area: the Howard Iron Works Print Expo & Fair on Saturday, September 29th 2018, from 10am to 4pm.

This will take place at Howard Iron Works, 800 Westgate Road, Oakville Ontario, where they have (so I’ve heard) a wonderful museum of restored old printing presses as a backdrop to the fair. I’ve been meaning to visit this museum for several years but never seem to get around to it.

This event is being held in conjunction with the local Doors Open event, which is a sort of organized simultaneous open house of multiple local buildings and businesses.

For the fair, the museum will have a press or two running, and perhaps their Linotype, and some of the 14 exhibitors will be doing demonstrations as well.

We’ll have a table there, selling paper, marbling, and some bookbinding supplies.

We don’t do Facebook ourselves, but the museum has a page there for this event.
