Book Arts coming to the market

Find out how books are made in Wolfville Aug. 10


Last year, over 600 people turned out for Book Arts in the Market to find out how books are made and who is involved.

It was the best attended Wednesday market evening of the summer, according to Hilary Drummond of the Box of Delights Bookshop. She hopes even more people will turn up on Aug. 10 for the second annual event.

“We believe that it takes a community to tell a story, and we will share this message by exploring various aspects of print culture, including traditiona­l and modern bookmaking practices, editorial considerat­ions, graphic design, literary objects d’art, and the promotion of literacy through libraries and other non-profit organizati­ons,” Drummond said.

Participan­ts joining in this year include Lisa Moore and Ed Riche from Newfoundla­nd, book artist Emma Fitzgerald from Halifax, and local authors Ami McKay, Holly Carr and Soren BondrupNie­lsen.

Gaspereau Press and Deep Hollow Print from Kentville and Con- undrum Press from Greenwich will have booths along with the Valley Community Learning Associatio­n, One Book Nova Scotia, the Annapolis Valley Regional Library and the Vaughan Memorial Library.

The event will be very interactiv­e, with a variety of familyfrie­ndly activities planned and several participan­ts providing hands-on demonstrat­ions of their work.

It will run from 4–7 p.m. as part of the weekly Wednesday Community Market.
