They're now actively seeking creators who may want to have a table at the event. Submissions are welcome from artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, zine artists and bookbinders.

BALTIC is running the Fair to celebrate the Festival of the North East. the hope is for the venue to become a market place of exhibiting book stalls within Quay, with opportunities to have a go at bookmaking and experience some Bibliotherapy from Lucy May Schofield in a Citreon Van and mobile library.

Also on display is The Sunderland Book Project offering visitors the chance to explore the city through the medium of artist’s books, The Book Apothecary, a travelling museum of book art encased in suitcases and sculpted bookwork from Cleveland College of Art.

The Festival of the North East is a month long celebration of the region’s creativity and innovation jam packed with over 200 events happening in every part of England’s North East during June 2013.
