[BKARTS] Invitation DRUKsel 2004, Gent, Belgium.

Gent, 25 Januar 2004
We like to invite you to show and sell your books at DRUKsel, Ghent.

DRUKsel 2004, a fair for private presses and small publishers, takes as of
old place during the Flemish Heritage weekend, this year on April 17th en
18th 2004. The previous editions took place in the Museum of Fine Arts.
Because of restoration activities, the Museum  and the DRUKsel fair with
it  moves to the Leopold barracks at the Charles de Kerchove Avenue. This
location is situated near the Ghent ring road at a 200 m distance of the
original Museum site.

 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, artists' books, contemporary book
design,  work of small'publishers, mail artists, magazines dealing with
literature and art,

Apart from the actual fair DRUKsel also offers a number of lectures:
Saturday, April 17th, the poets Albert Bontridder (Belgium), Leo Gillessen
(Belgium) and Martin Reints (The Netherlands), will read their poetry.

The lectures on Sunday, April 18th , both deal with the person and work
of  Karel Beunis (1939-1983), the legendary designer and typographer of the
Dutch publishing house De Bezige Bij: the speakers here are Gert-Jan Bouma,
Sjaak Hubregtse and Jan De Jong (this last lecture is organised in
cooperation with the Plantin Association in Antwerp). The work of Karel
Beunis is also the subject of an exhibition at the DRUKsel fair.
