Just when you wondered what else could possibly be happening on this extended bank holiday, it turns out that the Arnolfini will be playing hostess to a chill out event post- royal wedding frenzy, the Bristol Artists Book Event 2011.
Spread over three floors and two days there will be more than 80 artist bookmakers, dealers and small presses from Bristol and around the world showing and selling their work.
BABE provides a relaxed and friendly space to meet and chat to artists about their work and buy works of art. Prices start from just a few pounds.
It is an event organised in conjunction with the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England.
Sat 30 Apr, 11am – 6pm
Sun 1 May, 11am – 5pm
Imi Maufe: World Atlas
Also, if you get a chance you can take part in creating a World Atlas from memory during the BABE weekend. This work in progress will be on view during the weekend, before being bound into a book at the end.
