MANCHESTER ARTISTS BOOK FAIR

Fantastic weekend exhibiting at the Manchester Artists Book Fair which was held at the Old Fire Station on London Road in the centre of town. The building has been derelict for many years and has only just reopened for a limited series of events before it's redeveloped as (inevitably) luxury flats and hotels. We were housed in the fire engine room with its big tall doors and the original poles the firemen slid down still in place. It was a bit dark in there so glad I took some lights...

The event was held in conjunction with the Manchester Print Fair and this, coupled with Mancunian curiosity meant that footfall was high and we met some lovely people - other exhibitors and of course the punters.

Hopefully they won't have developed the building by next year so we can do it all again.
