2012 Pyramid Artist's Book Fair, Silver Spring, MDCarol Barton and Sarah Bryant at 2012 Pyramid Artist's Book Fair, Silver Spring, MD

The biennial Pyramid Atlantic Fair of Paper, Prints and Books took place last weekend, and Henry and I had a house full of artist guests in town for the event. I shared a table with letterpress book artist Sarah Bryant, now living in the U.K., and Esther Smith and Dikko Faust of Purgatory Pie Press also stayed with us for the weekend. The fair was well attended, and we had a constant flow of interested visitors looking at our work. I gave a hands-on demo of paper engineering techniques toward the end of the day. Also of note was The Print Factory’s small backpacker press, being demonstrated in these photos Kansas City artist Jesse McAfee.
