Paper Breakfast will be participating in the upcoming Boston Bazaar Bizarre in December. This annual craft fair always draws a big crowd and gives you the chance to support local artists and get lovely gifts for the holidays or any time all in one shot! More information can be found on their website, just click the link at the top right of this page. I will be selling an array of 2009 calendars, bound blank books with illustrated covers, letterpress cards and card sets, illustrated books, prints, and other things too.

Printing Arts Fair at The Museum of Printing, North Andover, MA

Sun. June 15 from 10 - 4

This museum is really amazing and filled to the brim with printing presses and ephemera. On Father's Day (June 15), they'll have a lot of the presses up and running, as well as over a dozen vendors selling lovely items: handmade books, printing equipment, paper, cards, and more. It's co-sponsored by the Letterpress Guild of New England and the Museum, and it is free. Vendors include: Albertine Press, B Designs, Carta, Inc., Rainy Planet Press, Sea Dog Press, Press Bound, Paper Breakfast, and others. There will be demonstrations of bookbinding, paper-making, paper-marbling, lithography, typesetting, and letterpress printing as well as hands-on activities. If you viewed this blog in the last two days, I had last year's flyer up by accident. The correct date is Sunday, June 15... Come by if you can!

Tiny Animal Books

these books are accordion books, filled with little animals.


Coptic Binding

I like these books because, like longstitch bindings, they open nice and flat for ease of use. Brown linen thread with grey bookcloth.
