MiniBABE | Bristol Artists' Books Event at Home

Every other year, in collaboration with the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE, Arnolfini hosts BABE, the Bristol Artists’ Book Event.

The next BABE is scheduled for 2021, but this spring we’ll be presenting a mini version via our website, exploring ways to enjoy artists’ books during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Expect a range of artists’ books shared online, new pieces by local book artists and writers, and suggestions for creative activities you can try at home.

We’ll be presenting MiniBABE through a series of blog and social media posts from Sunday 3 through to Thursday 7 May 2020 and beyond.
