It's back! The sixth biennial festival of artist book making, featuring the work of bookmakers and small presses from around the world.
Since 2007, BABE has established a great reputation as a relaxed and friendly event to meet and chat to book artists about their work and buy works of art. With more than 80 makers taking part, and prices start from just a few pounds, there will be something for everyone.
Expect performances, interventions, talks and workshops across the weekend too.
Featuring artists from all over the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Norway and South Korea:
