SGCI 2015: Press & Product Fair

P1100744Haypeep!

The Publisher and Product fair at the SGCI conferences is always a fan favorite event. Who doesn’t want to handle the latest wood carving gizmo developed my NASA or squeeze between there fingers the paper they would buy and print on once inheritance suit was settled. This year’s fair was no exception. A few promising trends are continuing, for example, more and more small press publishers are in attendance selling prints and related ephemera, and an interesting move several demos and performances took place in the fair space, drawing people back to the subterranean space and giving the booth workers some much needed entertainment.

This photo essay draws an incomplete picture of all of the great things happening at this corner of the conference.
