The 17th International Contemporary Artists' Book Fair forms the core of PAGES, an ongoing project of interrelated events establishing critical engagement with the medium of the artists' book, encouraging production and awareness and establishing an arena for display and for exchange between audience and maker.

The 2014 event will also incorporate a comprehensive series of discussions, lectures and forums during the Saturday and Sunday, and related exhibitions across the city.
