After 11 years of celebrating the story of the book and paper arts with audiences from schools, libraries, stores, museums, non-profit centers, and other public entities all around NE Ohio, Octavofest has come to an end.
More about Octavofest
Over the years, we learned about our rich local resources and the exciting world of contemporary book and paper arts. We visited venues where printmakers, paper sculptors, conservators, book artists, and bookbinders were exploring, creating, preserving, and exhibiting works that use two of humankind’s greatest technologies: books and paper. This website will remain online as an archive to our past schedule of events. January 2020
Octavofest draws its name from the “Octavo,” a traditional book format in which a large sheet of paper or parchment is folded three times to produce eight leaves. Antiquarian octavo format books include many rare, valuable, and beautiful objects.
