Oak Knoll Fest October 5 -7

874aea10-e590-4679-926c-8985575a1a6c

An Oak Knoll tradition for Twenty Years

Oak Knoll Fest XX is scheduled for October 5th – October 7th, 2018.  The theme this year is “Bringing it on Home” in which printers, booksellers, and collectors discuss that theme in a free symposium on Saturday [10/6], focusing on the importance of fine press book fairs that help and expand the knowledge of the book arts.

 

The book fair follows on Saturday and Sunday [10/6 & 10/7].  See this year’s exhibitors, including 40+ printers from North America and Europe.

 

We will also host talks by Pat Sweet, proprietor of Bo Press, David Sellers, owner of Pied Oxen Printers, Graham Moss, owner of Incline Press, and Rebecca Romney, bookseller at Honey & Wax Booksellers.
