SUBSTANCE: Portsmouth Artist's Book Event (PABE) 2018

Substance was the first national artist’s book event to be held in Portsmouth, featuring established UK and international artists and students from a broad range of artistic disciplines; writing, poetry, illustration, printmaking, spoken word, performance, sound and sculpture. University of Portsmouth Illustration Course exhibited books from all of our final year degree students. It was a great day.

Substance showcased traditional printed, bound book arts - handmade low tech 'zines, self publishing poets and writers; spoken word, sound and performance based artists; experimental, sculptural and site specific interactions designed to spark conversations and stories that both challenge and reinforce ideas of what constitutes a 'book'.
