QbyQ Press’ idea was to host an Art Book Fair where writers, zine makers, designers, and printers can showcase their beautiful work in a community-building event. We want to share the skills of bookmaking and self-publishing with as many other entrepreneurial DIY-ers as possible. 

Local participants include:

Adam Leach
Daniel Moore
Elizabeth Cooke
Harrington Comics
Heather Bryant
Karen Freidt
Liana Graham
The Prince Ink Co
Richard Nickel
Wade Mickley
Walt Taylor
Virginia MOCA
...and more!

The Art Book Fair will give exposure to local writers and printers, act as a place to learn and share skills, and will connect Norfolk’s literary scene to independent publishing outside of Norfolk. 

We are excited to infuse traditional, handmade, and unique books and book art into downtown Norfolk’s scene. This idea is exciting for us as a local independent publisher because it will be the first event of its kind in the re-envisioned arts district in Norfolk, VA.

So come by!

Friday, July 31st 5-9pm
Saturday, August 1st 11-5pm

Norfolk, VA 23510

QbyQ Press — with Christine Marie Rucker, Suzahn Ebrahimian, Karen Long Freidt, Adam Leach, Wade Mickley, Richard Nickel, Daniel Moore and Elizabeth Cooke.
