Mini-Curated-Micro-Books


Mini-Curated-Micro-Books

A project of the Baltimore Book Festival


Eight page Xeroxed, ink jet and other low cost/low production printed books.


This year Magazine Stand will be a repository for 8 page curated books. We’re asking artists/curators to produce a small quantity of books that include multiple artists working with a theme, idea or anything you want. For those of you who haven’t made books an eight page book can be two double-sided 8 ½ x 11 Xeroxed pages folded and saddle stapled (we will saddle staple your pamphlets if you don’t have access to a saddle stapler).


If you are interested in participating let me know as soon as possible. After that I will need the title of the book and the artists by September 1. I will need the actual books by September 21. The Book Festival takes placeSeptember 28-30, 2007.


Please send up to ten copies of your mini-book. We will have eight for sale at the stand and keep two copies that will be used as floor samples. All proceeds of the sale of the books will go to the maker. We would like to sell everything for between 1 and 3 dollars. We can carry books that cost more. As always, everything isn’t insured. Loss and damage can occur and while we work hard to make it not happen we can’t guarantee that it won’t.
