This year will feature their first guest artist, Alicia Bailey, renown book artist, and owner of Abecedarian Gallery in Denver, CO (www.abecedariangallery.com). One of the original founders of Octavofest, ABC is dedicated to exploring, encouraging, and teaching both contemporary and traditional artistic practices of the hand-made book.

The exhibit is a collaborative and educational project comprised of the work of over 100 visual artists. The artists have taken on the challenge of scaling down thoughts, text, images and materials and transformed them into readable, workable small-scale artists books that are a pleasure to handle, read and exhibit.
