Book Paper Scissors

November 23, 2013
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free Library of Philadelphia, Parkway Central

One of our Signature Events, Book Paper Scissors is an annual celebration of book arts, printmaking, and paper crafts, hosted by the Free Library, and featuring a variety of artists as well as educational workshops.

Just in time for holiday shopping, Book Paper Scissors brings you an array unique wares! Local and regional artisans will set up shop for this one day in the Central Parkway Free Library, to offer handcrafted fine and decorative arts to suit almost any interest. Find custom jewelry, limited-edition prints, handmade paper, beautifully bound books, and more!

For artists, this is also a great opportunity to show and sell work, and see what other artists are doing. Artists’ books, blank books, prints, paper jewelry, and paper-based art are welcome. Each artist will get a six-foot space to display work. The artist must arrive at 9:00 am to set up and is responsible for staffing the table during the fair. Tables are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Sharing tables is allowed.
