On Sunday, I visited the 2012 Handmade And Bound independent fair, a showcase for limited edition, affordable, handmade artists’ books, comics and zines.

Put together by my good friends Simon and Anne (who swiftly collared me into photographic duties), this year’s fair took place at the St Bride Foundation, off Fleet Street, London EC4, and attracted a good turn out of exhibitors and visitors.

The free event aims to present a balance of handmade artists’ books and old-fashioned zines (in the DIY punk tradition), and is open to anyone who makes their stuff, as opposed to sending it off to the printers.
