The Perfect Binding Bookfair aims to cultivate a sense of community and dialog within the independent literary and book craft communities in Nordic countries and overseas, to establish a new synergy in the wake of recent setbacks like the Covid-19 and Brexit situations that created barriers leaving individuals and groups in this milieu more isolated. The project aims to connect and grow this community and inspire new collaborations and creations, to explore the possibilities for further projects and provide mutual support.
We invite all book collectors, book publishers, literary fiends, authors, book makers and others in the outsiders book community to join us for a weekend of, first and foremost, sharing our books, selling and collecting, talking about, listening to, and being part of, the universe of books that is outside of the commercial and generic, and specially highlight the importance of bookbinders, bookpress artists, poetry, object books, and other collector items. This event is organized by Red Door in collaboration with Husets Biograf, thanks to the support of Nordisk Kulturfond.
There will be poetry readings and book releases accompanying the book fair, and the program will be complimented with a series of film screenings and talks at Husets Biograf after each evening, which includes:
