| 1st Seoul International Book Arts Fair,
COEX Pacific Hall, Seoul.
4th – 9th June 2004
Congratulations to Na Rae Kim, who organised the 1st Seoul International Book Arts Fair in Korea. The fair took place from 4th – 9th June at COEX Pacific Hall, Seoul. Book artist Na Rae Kim: the director of Bookpress as well as an author on book arts, organised the fair and produced an accompanying publication for the event. Forty-two groups, including artists from over 11 countries in Europe, America and Asia participated in the fair. The success of the fair has resulted in the potential for this to become not only an annual event in Korea, it has also shown the possibilities for fairs in northeastern Asia, China, Japan, and Taiwan.
The book produced as a catalogue for the fair is packed with information and images on book arts and will be a valuable resource for those who study and practice book arts. A full report on the book fair by Guy Begbie, will be published in the 2005 issue of the Artist’s Book Yearbook next summer.
In the meantime, any enquiries for next year’s event or, to purchase a copy of the catalogue, contact:
