Happenings 19: The fair!

September 25, 2009

Peggy and Danny and the balloonsWe spent today preparing for By Leaves We Live, our annual celebration of artists’ books and small presses by blowing up balloons, conscripting a friend called Danny, who only called in to say hello. Dave and Colin (resident podcaster and editor of Anon magazine) busily tied massive pieces of string round said balloons (‘like putting a lead round, really’, spake Dave), and Julie directed the whereabouts and whatabouts of tables, table cloths and book displays.

WE ARE EXCITED! We hope we’ll see loads of you tomorrow to peruse our lovely wares and those of our participating artists. Participants and details of free talks running throughout the day can be found out here. More things have happened this week, but they can summed up in few words: concrete poetry, flapjacks, honig filled sweets from Berlin and the excitement that an events programme fresh from the printers can bring…

Till tomorrow!
