Fine Press Book Fair - Oak Knoll Fest VI

A Weekend of Book Arts
Oak Knoll Fest VI

Saturday and Sunday, October 2 & 3, 1999
New Castle, Delaware USA

For its sixth year, Oak Knoll Fest offers a special opportunity for fine
book lovers and collectors to intermingle with those keeping the fine press
book tradition. Set in the historic, colonial town of Old New Castle,
located on the Delaware River, this two-day event brings together fine
presses and their books, collectors, librarians, and booksellers from all
over the world.

This year's focus will be on aspects of papermaking and the book. On
Saturday, Cathleen A. Baker and Steve Miller will present their new work, By
His Own Labor - The Biography of Dard Hunter, on the renowned paper
historian and private press printer. They will be followed by Cindy Bowden
who will give a presentation on the Robert C. Williams American Museum of
Papermaking. On Sunday, Graham Moss of the Incline Press from England will
give a talk about his press and work.

Oak Knoll Books will also hold its once-a-year, two-day 20% off sale on all
antiquarian and new titles during the fair, including Oak Knoll Press
titles. Oak Knoll Books is one of the foremost specialists in antiquarian
and new books about books, the history of the book, and the book arts. Oak
Knoll Press annually publishes over 30 titles in these fields.

If you love fine, collectible books produced by masters of printing and the
book arts, don't miss this rare chance to meet the printers in person and
see their books. Come to this year's fair to show your support for those
carrying on the revered traditions of fine bookmaking and browse the titles
