Join illustrator Stephen Fowler and artist Harriet Price, as they open their Rubber Stamp Passport Office for the first time.

They will be issuing an edition of 100 passports, as a means to navigate BABE and collect stamp impressions from the many bookmakers, small publishers, artists and other stallholders, who are contributing to this rubber stamp Happening. To be one of the lucky few who are issued with a passport, form an orderly queue at one of the following times.

Rubber stamps, alternative printmaking and small press publications are the focus of Stephen Fowler's authorial illustration practice. His work is held in national collections such as the Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Fowler has run experiential and collaborative workshops at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, the V&A, the Idler Academy, Hayward Gallery’s Wide Open School, and Margate’s Turner Contemporary gallery.

He is a lecturer at Worcester University's BA Illustration course and his book on rubber stamping, published Laurence King publishing, is out now.

Harriet Price is a painter, drawer, rubber stamp printer and model maker. She also works with, amongst other things, sewing machines, felt, papier mache, and Posca Pens.
