I have exhibited in the artisan books arists books exhibition a number of times in the past (usually when there has been a theme... and when I haven't forgotten all about the due dates!) and found them lovely to deal with

Like ronnie, I have participated in this annual exhibition ever since it began a number of years ago. I have already submitted my entry, and will be exhibiting my BAO book "That Unbearable Lightness".
