Toronto Small Press Book Fair 2010

This was the Fantasy Camp table at the small press book fair. Thank you for visiting and appreciating the handcrafted books and pins. It was nice getting to know you while sharing my thoughts and practice in book arts.

It is definitely not realized that there are so little handmade books created nowadays. In my opinion, handmade books embody the artist's hands - a real value compared to books made by machines. When made with archival materials and thoughtful construction, handmade books will outlast the laptops you are reading this blog entry from.

They may require a lot of time and effort to make, but they are valuable and physical things that will last for years to come.
