Especially for the Going West Books and Writers Festival, Te Uru's Learning Centre will become a thriving showcase of handmade books and limited-edition publications, zines and more. With an emphasis on supporting the ingenuity of independent productions and artist books, the annual Indie Book Fair will show the diversity of small-scale productions and the ongoing creativity and exuberance of the people behind these creations.
Participants include Artspace, Coulds Publishing, Dryden Street Distro, Gow Langsford Gallery, Index, Inky Palms, Remote Photobooks, ST Paul St, Te Tuhi, Te Uru, UNIFORM and more.
Some publications will be for sale (cash only — there is an ATM nearby in the village), but we'll also be exhibiting rare or out-of-print examples. Spend your Sunday browsing the bespoke publications being produced by some of the best writers, designers, printers and artists, many of whom will be present. The third annual Indie Book Fair also includes a free button-badge stall, where participants can browse through a trove of art magazines to create colourful and to take away with them.
Sunday 10 September, 11am-3pm
