As all dedicated bibliophiles know, an afternoon in the company of a good book is one well spent. Rejoice then, that on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th December you can spend an entire weekend poring over paper at BALTIC’s Artists’ Book Market.

The annual free event takes over Level 1 of the Gateshead gallery and offers the opportunity to browse the work of artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, artist’s groups, zine artists and bookbinders.

Ideally timed for Christmas gift ideas for the book lover in your life, there’s much to enjoy including a programme of talks, workshops and screenings, specialist contributions from NewBridge Off-Site, a mobile interactive pod from NewBridge Books who will be hosting a platform for discussions around the potentials of small press and digital publishing.

North East Photography Network will also be on hand to present a range of photographic publications alongside a series of talks, and you can even get involved in bookbinding yourself by joining in a morning workshop (on both days) or an e-book workshop on the Saturday afternoon.

Artists’ Book Market is at BALTIC, Gateshead on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th December.
