Dispatch from Tokyo: Tokyo Art Book Fair 2012

Contributor post from Ros of Polkaros


Greetings from Tokyo! We are back with some pictures to share from the Tokyo Art Book Fair 2012 that was held last weekend. With over 230 participants, Tokyo Art Book Fair is the biggest art book fair in Asia. The 3 day event was overflowing with creativity and inspiration. We were very honored to showcase our latest Polkaros zine alongside with all the amazing zine makers and art book publishers from around the world. 









We met Eunice Luk and were amazed by her beautiful handcrafted books!

Hello Sandwich was also at the fair exhibiting her latest book and handmade zine! 


Here's a picture of our Polkaros booth with our latest zine
