Handmade & Bound Nashville 3rd edition takes place October 4&5, 2013. H&BN is a celebration of all things book. It’s also a sort of trade show and marketplace, a place where vendors can connect with readers, fans, hobbyists and other vendors. We welcome makers of books, blank books, book objects, book jewelry, comics, mini-comics and zines, as well as sellers of book and printing materials. Pretty much anything book-related we want represented at our festival.
Check out our list of vendors who attended Handmade & Bound Nashville, Vol.2 on the Vendor List 2012 page.
For information on how to become a vendor, visit our Vendor Registration page. Or, you can select the stamp icon to go directly to the registration form. Our vendor registration deadline is September 23, 2013.
