(via poopsheet and BugPowder); Summer Edition 2009, the first event of its kind in Dublin, is a free, day long fair where over 30 exhibitors from across the spectrum of artist's books, comics and zines will get together to showcase their work.
With selections ranging from minicomic artists and burgeoning cartoonists to established artists' book practitioners, from poets to printmakers, and from lowbrow artists to zine scribblers, there's something for everyone. Prices range from €1 to €100.
Peruse the stalls, take part in a workshop, pick up some handcrafted goodies and let the books blow your mind.
Summer Edition 2009 is the first Edition event, a new endeavour celebrating the craft of the book and independent publishing via artists' books, comics and zines and all stops in between.
