Ghent, 05.02.2003


Druksel 2003, a fair for private presses and small publishers takes place
during the Flemish Heritage weekend on April 26th en 27th 2003. This year
the Museum of Fine Arts (Citadelpark, Ghent) hosts the Druksel fair.
As of old Druksel focuses on editors combining high quality content with
high standard design. 'Special' books and books that are not commonly found
in main stream book shops constitute the heart of all Druksel activities.
The Druksel fair shows bibliophile editions, livres d'art, contemporary
book design,  work of 'small' editors, mail art, magazines dealing with
literature and art,...
Practical arrangements:
*       unloading is possible at a small square adjoining the museum. Parking
facilities are ample in the immediate surroundings of the museum ; at
Saturday the museum is open for you at 9.00 a.m., for the public at 10.00 a.m.
*       Druksel provides tables (80 x 180 cm) and chairs
*       It will be possible to get a drink in the museum's cafetaria
