Glasgow International Artists Book Fair

From Harald and Helen of the GIAB:
Following the success of Glasgow International Artists’ Bookfair 2008 we are pleased to announce that bookings are now being taken for GIAB 2010.
GIAB 2010 will take place on Friday the 16th & Saturday the 17th April 2010 and will be open to the public between 11am and 6pm on both days.
We are happy to have secured the same venue as last time, namely the Exhibition Hall at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Its central location and the friendly & professional support we received last time make it ideal for our purposes.
The booking fee for both days is £65, a slight increase from last time, due to the increase in costs of venue hire. For this fee you will be provided with 1 table and 2 chairs [more if required]. Display boards are also available for a small fee of £5 per board.
If you would like to participate but are unable to attend in person, we can offer you a table displaying your books, which will be attended by a volunteer. The price for this option is £95, plus the cost of return postage.
Once again we will produce a catalogue to accompany the event and, of course, a website. We also intend to organise workshops that will take place on both days.
Also, given the success of our daytrip to Loch Katrine, we are planning a similar endeavour, so leave the Sunday free and join us for a trip.
The deadline for bookings is Friday 22nd January 2010.
We hope you are interested in coming to Glasgow to participate in or visit what is set to be another enjoyable and inspirational event.
Please email us if you would like to participate and we will send you a booking form.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best wishes
Helen & Harald
