The Center for Book and Paper Arts is pleased to participate in the fast growing Chicago Zine Fest, which takes place on the 1st & 8th floor of our very own building, the Ludington Building, 1104 S Wabash Ave on March 26, 2011.

The Center will have a table at the fair (1st floor), for the distribution of informational materials, publications and JAB, the Journal of Artists' Books. In addition, the Book and Paper graduate student group P.I.T. will sell their own zines, publications and editioned works.

In addition to a table on the 1st floor, the Center will also host special Zine Fest demos, located in our studios on the 2nd floor. The demos are organized by PIT representative and Book and Paper MFA student April Llewellyn.
