On Saturday, October 5, from 11AM to 4PM, join a horde of book artists, zine makers, print makers and small press operators in the halls of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film for the H&BN Marketplace. Browse book themed jewelry created by Laura Matthews of the Book Cellar, prints by the Brooklyn based artists of Cannonball Press Collective, Thorazine created by Watkins students Russell Mahan and Chris Davidson, paper cut cards from Kelli Hix, and artists’ books of every description. Pick up your H&BN shopping bag hot off the press, courtesy of our friends from Austin Peay State University. In addition to examples of the bookish arts for sale, there will be demonstrations of origami, linoleum block printing, bookbinding and letterpress printing. Go to our Vendors page for a complete list. Take part in the Our Town Nashville public art project and help create a portrait of Nashville.
