Book binding fair in Leiden #2

Yesterday I drove on a very foggy morning towards the city of Leiden to see once again the paper fair as I like to call it, but its real name is Boekkunstbeurs.
I must admit that it wasn't as good as last year, for some reason many stalls were missing. But, I did manage to see some interesting work, and revisited a favorite from a year ago.



The work of John Spencer is absolutely incredible. I really loved it all. Chatting with him was the highlight!


 Water Leaf Press was my favorite from last year, and I love her new work as well.

 Kamiya Paper has stunning handmade paper.

As always I tend to forget to ask about cards... I just take pictures of what I like, and then I get home to write a post and there are no names to link back. So this one and the ones below are purely for inspiration.



Lots of pictures, not so many words. I think the pictures speak for themselves and don't need my opinion added.
I hope all is well at you end. I'm very excited about a concert I'm going tonight, I have been waiting 20 years to listen to them live, so yes!!! Very, very excited!!!

    1. It was quite inspiring, and they always have a few small letterpress printing machines and oh, how I wish I had one of those ;)
